Office of Financial Aid

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

All students applying for federal financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal Application and have their eligibility for federal funds determined from the information provided on the FAFSA. There is no fee associated with filing the FAFSA or the Renewal Application. The information on your application is used to calculate your expected contribution through a formula called Federal Methodology.

No determination of financial aid eligibility can be made without a processed FAFSA or Renewal Application on file in the Student Financial Aid Office. Therefore, it is essential that you complete the FAFSA and mail or submit it according to the deadlines listed in the financial aid calendar.
