Applying for Financial Aid

1. Apply for your P.I.N. (personal identification number).

Your P.I.N is used to electronically sign applications such as your FAFSA and Master Promissory Note (for student loan borrowers). It will also be needed to access your U.S. Department of Education records online. If you are a dependent student, your parent will also need to apply for a P.I.N as they WILL be required to electronically sign your FAFSA. If you receive a PIN, you agree to not disclose or share it with ANYONE. You should NEVER give your PIN to anyone, including commercial services that offer to help you complete your FAFSA. Be sure to keep your PIN in a safe place.

 2. Complete your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

This is your application for ALL federal student aid including grants, student loans and work-study. For the Summer 2013 semester, complete the 2012-2013 FAFSA application by using your 2011 tax return. For the Fall 2013, Spring 2014, and Summer 2014 semester(s), complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA application using your 2012 tax return. If you are a dependent student (under 24, not married, and do not provide more than 50% of support to dependents of your own such as children), you will need to use your parents tax returns as well. If you are married, you will use both yours and your spouse’s tax information. Be sure to choose the IRS Data Retrieval Option to have your tax return information imported into the FAFSA. You will also need to add our school code to your application; this ensures that your information will be sent to our school. After you have completed, electronically signed and submitted your FAFSA it generally takes four business days to process before they send the information to us.

 3. Be prepared to provide verification documents to the Financial Aid Office.

In the event that your application is selected for verification we will send you correspondence (via email) requesting the documentation needed. Please make sure that the email address listed on the FAFSA as well as the email address on file at the college is where you wish to receive emails. If a copy of tax transcripts are requested, please request the tax transcripts by calling the IRS at 1.800.908.9946 or visit www.irs.gov. Read all questions, complete, sign, and date anything you return to the financial aid office. Make sure that all information you provide is accurate and correct! Providing false information on your financial aid application is a violation of federal law.
