Complete the FAFSA

Applying for financial aid starts with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  You should review the General Eligibility Requirements for financial aid programs.

Before Filing the FAFSA

Gather Information

You will need to have specific information available when completing the FAFSA. See the Information You'll Need.PDF

Create An FSA ID

If you have not done so already, you will need an FSA ID to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you are a dependent student, a parent will also need to create an FSA ID.

An FSA ID is a username and password that you will use to complete the FAFSA and log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. It may take up to 3 days to receive your FSA ID.
