IMPORTANT FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID UPDATES
  • Attention Graduating Seniors!!! - You will need to complete Exit Counseling at studentloans.gov.
  • The 2018- 2018 FAFSA application is now available.
    • What is FAFSA Frenzy?
      • FAFSA Frenzy is an initiative to encourage our students to complete their FAFSA when the application becomes available. All students who complete the application between October 1, 2017 and October 31, 2017 will be eligible to register early for their Spring 2018 courses, regardless of classification. In order to register early, you must not have any holds on your student record.
    • Will the 2017-18 FAFSA info be carried over to the 2018-19 Renewal FAFSA?
      • No. Too much information could have changed since you filed the 2017-2018 FAFSA application.
      • Keep in mind: Students and parents will be eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically import their tax information into FAFSA, making the process of reporting tax information quick and easy.
    • Can a student/parent choose to report 2017 tax information?
      • No. You must report the information the FAFSA asks for. The 2018-2019 FAFSA requires 2016 tax information. Remember: Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your tax information.
  • PELL GRANT ELIGIBILITY
  • REPEATED COURSE WORK
  • FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY-COMPLETED PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
