How to apply for Financial Aid

Incoming Students (First-Year, Transfer)

To apply for financial aid:

Step 1. Create an FSA User ID. For help, see this video

Step 2. Use your FSA User ID to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using school code 002844 and the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application using school code 0915.

Returning Students

Renewal Application must be filed each year. Many "Campus-based" aid programs with limited funding are depleted early, so filing your FAFSA and TAP applications should be done after October 1st.

Although parent's information may be required, it is the student's responsibility to complete all application requirements for all aid programs.
