Applying for Financial Aid

Apply for financial aid EARLY and remember to REAPPLY for each school year in attendance. (A school year consists of fall, spring and summer semesters).

Financial Aid Disbursement

To receive your financial aid funds for grants, loans, scholarships and work-study you must sign up for direct deposit. This will require you to have a bank account, checking or savings, to receive your funds.

Your Personal PIN #

Apply for a personal PIN number from the Department of Education. This PIN number works as an electronic signature on the federal financial aid application. It will also be needed to access student's financial aid account information and to apply for student loans. (For students required to supply parents information, one parent will also need to apply for a PIN number).

Financial Aid Application

Once you recieve your PIN number, electronically complete the financial aid application at www.fafsa.gov.
