The first step in applying for any financial aid begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application ensures that all eligible individuals can benefit from federally funded or federally guaranteed financial assistance. Paper applications are available in the campus financial aid office, but students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the online application process as it will expedite the whole process.
All applicants and parents of dependent applicants need to apply for a PIN to electronically sign the application. The PIN simplifies the application process and allows you to get your results faster. Apply for the PIN on the FAFSA site.
