Applying for Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will help fund your education after high school.

The Basics

  • Complete your FAFSA starting October 1st of your Senior year.
  • The earlier you complete the FAFSA the better.
  • The process can seem overwhelming. Have this information available to make the process as smooth as possible:

I've filed my FAFSA, now what?

  • You will receive information by email (the email you gave for your FSA ID).
  • This information will share estimated funds.
  • Read any and all emails you receive from FAFSA/Federal Student Aid, and any college/schools you are applying to. These emails may request additional information to confirm your financial aid needs.
  • Stay in communication with the financial aid office at the college/school you hope to attend. They may request additional information to confirm your financial aid needs.
  • You will receive a Financial Aid Award Letter from your college/school with the financial aid (scholarships, grants, and loans) available to you. Remember: You can accept or refuse any aid (you can refuse loans if you do not want or need them).
