4 Step Admissions Process

Meet our Admissions Staff

The first step towards expanding your career opportunities is meeting our admissions staff. We recommend that applicants and their families visit the American National University campus so they can acquaint themselves with University personnel and facilities in person. Those who cannot visit the campus are urged to call the Admissions Department at 888-956-2732 for a telephone interview or submit the form at left to contact an Admissions Representative.


Apply for FAFSA Online

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA, will help your Student Services Representative to determine your eligibility for various funding programs and inform you of all available options in paying for your education. Applying before our financial aid deadlines is important so that we can determine eligibility for all financial assistance options before you start your classes.

You will need the school code for American National University for your FAFSA application: 003726

After completing your FAFSA, you will have the opportunity to meet with your Student Services Representative to discuss all possible financial aid packages. This will allow you to make the most informed choices on your investments into your education. Make sure you print a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR) and bring it with you to your first appointment with your Financial Aid / FAFSA Advisor.
