The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only form required to apply for financial aid.
Apply online by visiting the following web page: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ Our Federal Title IV Code is 003733 Register for the PIN at http://www.pin.ed.gov/PINWebApp/pinindex.jsp to sign your FAFSA onlineBoth the student and at least one parent must have a PIN and sign the FAFSA
There is no cost for submitting this form online. It must not be submitted earlier than January 1. Based on the information you supply, the FAFSA will determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
Once we have the results of your FAFSA, a financial aid package can be prepared and offered. Financial aid award letters are mailed in late March for entering students and in mid June for returning students. FAFSA results (requests for financial aid) received after the deadlines (March 1 - entering students; May 1 - returning students) will be handled on a funds-available basis.
If your application for financial aid is selected by the Federal Processor for verification, you will need to submit certain required documents. Your FAFSA Student Aid Report (SAR) lets you know if your record has been selected for verification. You will receive notice from us of the specific documents required.

You also must submit all relevant documentation along with the form. We will not review your re-evaluation without your FAFSA results.
