To apply for need-based grants, scholarships, loans, work-study; and non-need-based student and parent loans, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This application will become available in January 2015.

The FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and University aid. Even if you think you may not be eligible, we strongly encourage you to submit the FAFSA. For more information about the FAFSA, visit the Costs, Aid, and Scholarships section of our website.

Until the fall 2015 FAFSA becomes available, we encourage you to use our Net Price Calculator to receive an estimate of your need-based financial aid.
