Financial Aid FAQs

Students will need to visit the FAFSA website and login using their FSA ID and password. If a student does not have a FSA ID and password a new account will need to be created.

Please note FAFSA needs to be updated for each academic year, beginning in October. New FAFSAs become available October 1st of each year.
