The Financial Aid Process

How to apply for aid:

Although the process for applying for financial aid can seem complicated, it can easily be broken down into three critical steps.

Step 1: Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Step 2: Respond to any requests from the Financial Aid Office concerning additional information that may be required.

Step 3: Receive your award letter 1-2 weeks later. This will help you determine what your out-of-pocket expenses will be.
