Apply Now for 2017-2018 Financial Aid
Federal School Code: 001775
We encourage all students to apply for financial aid by submitting the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Apply as soon as possible to be considered for all financial aid programs for Fall 2017, Spring 2018 or Summer 2018.
The financial aid application process is changing in two ways beginning with the 2017-2018 year:
- The FAFSA is available three months earlier beginning October 1, 2016.
- The application process will use 2015 income and tax data. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to obtain this data will make the process simpler and the results more accurate.
