Financial Aid Checklist
The process of applying for Federal financial aid begins with the completion of the Free Application For Federal Student Aid or FAFSA. The application requires that you enter a variety of personal information as well as the required financial information for yourself, and your parents, for those of you considered to be Dependent students. The FAFSA contains step-by-step instructions and we encourage you to take your time and, if you have questions, read the instructions very carefully. The following link will take you directly to the FAFSA webpage where you can begin the process.
It is important that you get the FAFSA done as soon as you have completed all of the required tax returns (yours and your parent’s). There are various deadlines that you will want to meet to qualify for some of the outside funding that is available.
The entire process can be complicated and lengthy but there is a wealth of information and help available to you from a variety of resources.
