Procedures and Eligibility
Students should obtain a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application form from the Financial Aid Office. Most financial aid programs are determined by analyzing the families' ability to pay in relation to the cost for a school year. In order to determine financial need on a uniform basis, each applicant must submit this FAFSA, either the paper form or via the internet at www.fafsa.gov.
After financial need has been established, a student's need may be met through one of several funds or through a financial aid package consisting of a combination of funds and programs.
Students should submit financial aid forms prior to each term deadlines for aid to be processed and applied to the following academic term. (Summer - April 1st, Fall - June 1st, and Spring - Nov 1st) Students who apply after this date may find funds depleted. Applicants entering from high school are advised to apply early in their senior year no later than April 1st. Contact the Financial Aid Office or high school guidance counselor for further information.
The school code for the FAFSA is 010027.
