Apply for Financial Aid - Fill out your FAFSA!

Create your FSA ID

The FSA ID is a username and password used by students, parents, and borrowers to:  login to U.S. Department of Education websites and electronically sign documents.  You will use it every year you apply for federal student aid, to receive a federal student loan, and to perform important activities as a federal student loan borrower, such as choosing a repayment plan or applying for a deferment.  If you are a dependent student, then your parent will need a different FSA ID in order to sign your FAFSA electronically.  Create your FSA ID by going to StudentAid.gov/fsaid

Safeguard Your FSA ID  and REMEMBER It!

Complete the FAFSA

Complete the FAFSA online by going to www.fafsa.ed.gov.  A FAFSA must be completed for EACH school year.  The school year consists of Fall, Spring and Summer terms.  It is to your advantage to complete the FAFSA each year as soon as you complete your taxes for the previous year.  Some state funds are on a first come first serve basis.
