Financial Aid - Applying For Aid

Federal Aid Process

For those who qualify, federal financial aid grant and loan programs may be an option. Steps for completing the financial aid process:

  1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you have never completed a FAFSA before, you must first create an FSA ID. To create an FSA ID, visit https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm.
     

  2. Complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Loan Counseling at www.studentloans.gov.
     

  3. When we receive your completed FAFSA, you may be asked for additional verification documents. (Additional documents may consist of federal tax forms for the prior year, a verification worksheet, W-2s, certain tax schedules, etc.) Verification documents are used to verify the accuracy of the FAFSA.
     

  4. Once your FAFSA, MPN, Entrance Loan Counseling and additional verification documents (if required) are received, you will receive an Official Award Letter.
     

  5. You may accept or decline any or all aid on your Official Award Letter. Please note: You will need to apply for financial aid every year.
