To apply for any federal or state financial aid programs, you will need to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). FAFSA online is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov and must be completed each year. The next year’s application is available each year after January 1. Complete your FAFSA as early as possible so that your aid is packaged in time for the start of fall semester and so that all aid types you may be eligible for are still available. When you apply, you (and one of your parents if you are considered dependent) will use a PIN to electronically sign the FAFSA. A PIN is easily obtained at www.pin.ed.gov. Our Federal School Code that you will need for the FAFSA is 003923.
