How To Apply
Applying for financial aid must be done annually, following the steps below. You must also be registered before aid can be processed.
Step 1: Create an FSA ID
Create an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov. This will allow you to sign your FAFSA application electronically. If you already have an FSA ID, you do not need to re-apply for another.
Step 2: FAFSA
Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on or after October 1st of the year you will be attending.
Complete the FAFSA online at studentaid.gov.

Step 3: Review your Student Aid Report (SAR) for errors
When you receive your Student Aid Report (SAR), please make any corrections that might be needed. Provide the Financial Aid Office any required documentation as indicated on your SAR, e.g. citizenship or verification documentation.
Step 4: Review the Cost of Attendance (COA)
Review the COA to determine how much loans you will need to apply for. Please check with your Financial Aid Office for your COA.
Step 5: Complete the Electronic Master Promissory Note (eMPN)
First-time borrowers applying for a loan must complete a Federal Unsubsidized / Graduate Plus loan application at studentaid.gov.
Step 6: Complete the Entrance Counseling
First-time borrowers must take and complete the Entrance Counseling Interview. It is an online questionnaire that details students’ rights and responsibilities as loan borrowers. Please log in with your FSA ID to take the interview.
