To apply for Federal financial aid, you must complete a FAFSA and provide any required documentation. An award year runs from July 1st to June 30. To apply for federal aid within the award year, you must apply before June 30 of that award year. There is no institutional deadline for applying for Federal Title IV funding; however, you must complete all requirements to receive funding before the end of your first semester.
The US Department of Education has an excellent website with detailed information on federal aid sources, links to apply for aid and more. Start your exploration by applying for a federal student aid ID (FSA ID). This ID is the first step in applying for aid and allows you to access your federal financial aid information at any time.

Remember to fully explore all sources of possible funding, especially free, non-repayable grants and scholarships. Student loans can be an option, but again, explore federal student loan offerings before resorting to private loans. Private loans typically are more expensive and less flexible to repay. Consider carefully before you decide to borrow, you must repay that debt. Our guide
