Applying for Financial AidStudents seeking any type of financial assistance should apply early for admission to the University, as students may not be awarded financial aid until they have been officially accepted by the University.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which will determine the amount of assistance and which program is appropriate for you. You can obtain this application from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, your high school guidance counselor, or online.
