Start with the FAFSA

A good first step in the financial aid process is to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA form is free, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to help pay for college or career school. Our federal school code is 003925.

Types of Financial Aid

Financial aid comes in many forms, including grants, scholarships, loans, student employment and military benefits.
