Application Process

Continuing undergraduates must reapply for financial aid each year by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


Applying for Financial Aid

  1. If you have not already done so, Create An FSA ID  — Watch this video for a tutorial: How to create an FSA ID
  2. Use the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to import your tax information to FAFSA. The DRT improves accuracy and reduces the likelihood of being selected for federal verification.
  3. Priority deadline is 2/15/2021 for Undergraduate (CAS) Continuing Students

You must complete the FAFSA

Use School Code 003197

Important Notes:

  • If you are selected for Federal Verification, the deadline to submit documentation is March 29, 2021, otherwise we will be unable to process your financial aid request in a timely manner.
  • You should file the FAFSA with estimated income information, rather than risk missing the priority deadline of February 15th.
  • Respond quickly to requests for additional information — a delay in responding will impact our ability to provide you with an offer of financial assistance.
