Financial Aid Information

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that can be prepared annually by current and prospective college students (undergraduate and graduate) in the United States to determine their eligibility for student financial aid.  An overview of the application process can be watched by clicking this link.  This single application can be used for up to ten different schools.  

The window to complete the FASFA application is OPEN on January 1st; in previous years this date was October 1st.  Each college sets their own priority filing deadline; a listing of those deadlines can be found within this link (halfway down the page).  Additionally, keep in mind your FAFSA application will not be processed until you have applied (and been accepted) to the college.  Applying to college should be done first.

The first step to filling out the FAFSA is creating an ID (both student and parent); click this link to begin that process.  
Students and parents should click this link to complete and file their FAFSA applications.  It is recommended that parents complete the FAFSA online (using a computer and not a phone application) using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).  This will reduce errors and the possibility for audit.
