Steps to Apply for Financial Aid and Cost of Attendance

Usually, step one in applying for financial aid is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available online at www.fafsa.ed.gov

Although applications are processed until all federal funds are expended, students who apply by the March 1st deadline have a greater chance of receiving financial aid than those who apply late.

Aid awarded to a student one year does not mean that he or she is eligible to receive aid in a subsequent year, unless the student continues to demonstrate need as defined by the U.S. Department of Education. An application, each year, is required to continue to receive financial aid.

Information concerning financial aid may be obtained by writing to:
