You will need to complete and submit applications for financial aid if you want to receive grants, scholarships, and/or loans.

    • It is very important to apply for financial aid on time in order to meet all the deadlines set by the agencies and colleges that are offering the aid.
    • Check with your school or college to make sure you fill out all necessary forms and meet all deadlines.


Your eligibility for aid is based on the information you provide on the applications. Fill them out carefully and honestly.

  • Most of these forms are available online so you can apply electronically rather than mail in a paper application.
  • We highly recommend that you print a copy of any application you complete online.
  • There is usually a print option at the end of the application.
