How to Apply

Application Procedures

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application for all Federally–funded Financial Aid programs and can be completed online at

**Please make sure that you wait until the IRS accepts your tax return and those of your parents for Dependent students prior to completing the FAFSA and that you use the IRS Transfer Tool to populate the tax information on your FAFSA. If you do not use the transfer tool, you will be selected for Verification and will have to acquire tax transcripts from the IRS. We will not be able to accept a copy of your tax return.
