How Do I Apply for Financial Aid?

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA takes about 30 minutes to complete. To determine what funds you are eligible for, you will be asked to enter information about income and taxes paid, so please have your most recent tax returns on hand to help you complete it.
