FEDERAL FINANCIAL AID

How to apply?

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The process for obtaining federal financial aid begins when you file the FAFSA (Application for Free Federal Aid) application for each academic year. You can complete the FAFSA electronically by accessing www.studentaid.gov. The electronic page allows you to select if you want to complete the application in English or Spanish. In addition, there you will find online support through "chat" in Spanish.

To complete the FAFSA, the student and parent (if a dependent student) must apply for a personal identification card (“FSAID”) which they will use to electronically sign their FAFSA application, entrance orientation, and required promissory note for student loans.

Eligibility will depend on the student's financial need, using a federal government formula, determined by the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC).

  • Remember that the Sacred code is
    003937.
  • Make sure you have a copy of the Tax Return Form. If you are dependent, you need your parents' Tax Returns
  • If you had income from earned wages and it was not required to file an income tax return, you must also have Form W-2.
  • Pensions – before tax
  • Alimony received and/or paid
  • Other income received by parents and/or student
  • Also, you need your Social Security number.
