Apply Now for Federal, State and Institutional Financial Aid for the 2014-2015 Academic Year
The time to apply for financial aid for the 2014-2015 academic year (Fall 2014, Spring 2015 and Summer 2015) is now by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Office of Financial Assistance encourages all students to apply as early as possible to avoid missing any grant opportunities. Our Federal School Code is 009333.
You will need information from your (and your parent’s) 2013 federal tax return but those tax returns do not need to have been filed with the IRS for you to be able to complete and submit the FAFSA. If you filed the FAFSA last year for the 2013-2014 academic year, please just update the information and submit the FAFSA today if you have not already done so. You will find additional information and tips on how to apply and how you can submit your FAFSA application for 2014-2015 by clicking here.
Applicants are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval process functionality within the FAFSA application. When completing the income sections of the FAFSA, the applicant is given the option to have this data retrieved directly from the IRS. If you have already completed your Federal Tax Return for 2013, please complete the IRS Data Retrieval process to transfer your 2013 Federal Tax Return information onto the FAFSA. The benefit of utilizing the IRS Data Retrieval process is that it will minimize your chances of being selected by the federal processor for the verification process. Follow the IRS Data Retrieval process directions on the FAFSA to complete the process. This is our preferred method.
