|FAFSA||The world of financial aid can seem vast and complicated. While the staff in the Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping you maximize the financial aid available to you, you must begin the financial aid process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. There is no charge to complete this form.
You should apply for financial aid every year by completing the FAFSA form - even if you don’t think you qualify. A change in family financial circumstances might affect your eligibility for student aid.
