Checklist & Deadlines

Applying for Financial Aid

Our financial aid process is simple.  Those planning on applying need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is the only required application form for the 2016-2017 academic year. The FAFSA can be completed online at

If you have not done so already, you will be required to create and FSA ID to access your previous and current FAFSA information. Information on how to create your FSA ID is located at

The FSA ID is now used as a substitute for the PIN and requires additional security measures to ensure your privacy is protected.  This FSA ID will serve as your link to information regarding all your federal loans.
