To apply for financial aid, simply complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. You will need our school code, which is 003801. Also, check out the Application Checklist for the three basic steps in applying for financial aid. You can view a video that gives assistance in completing your FAFSA at: How to complete your FAFSA.
Once you have completed the FAFSA, we will contact you by mail regarding your eligibility and status.
The financial aid priority deadline for the 2014-2015 year is March 15, 2014. The 2014-2015 school year starts fall quarter 2014. If you miss that deadline, you may still use the FAFSA to apply for student loans and remaining grant funds. Processing time for financial aid is usually 3-6 weeks. Please allow sufficient time for the processing of your financial aid and tuition due dates. During peak times, processing times may increase.
Financial aid is still available for the current 2013-2014 school year. Students can apply by submitting the 2013-2014 FAFSA. Remaining eligibility is for student loans and Pell grants. Processing time usually takes around 3-6 weeks.
Loans, unlike grants or work study, are borrowed money that must be repaid, with interest. To apply for a loan, a student loan application must be completed and submitted to our office. You must also have a completed FAFSA in addition to the loan worksheet.
