About Financial Aid
It all starts with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). With this one application, you can apply for financial aid at multiple colleges and from multiple funding sources (federal, state, institutional and private providers of assistance).
When to complete your FAFSA
Right now! You fill out the FAFSA once for each academic year that you will attend school. The farther in advance you do it, the better!
2013 - 2014 Academic Year
The FAFSA for next academic year (July 1, 2013- June 30, 2014) is available online now. This worksheet gives you a preview of the questions asked, and will help you gather the information you need before starting the online application.
