FAFSA Federal Financial Aid


The 2024-25 FAFSA is now open!

Students should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible each year in order to access more financial aid opportunities. Money is often available on a first-come, first served basis. 

Apply online –

The most important step of applying for financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To apply for any federal student aid, such as federal grants, loans, and work-study, you need to complete the FAFSA.  The FAFSA collects information about you and your family and determines how much your family is expected to contribute to your education (EFC-Expected Family Contribution). You’ll usually receive EFC information in four to six weeks. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and easy, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.


The first step is to create an account to register for your FSA ID which will allow you to complete the FAFSA process. Whether you’re a student, parent, or borrower, you’ll need to create your own account to apply for, receive, and manage your federal student aid. BOTH the student and a parent/gaurdian will need an FSA ID. Create your FSA ID’s here:



We recommend you use the FAFSA Financial Aid Estimator, which is an online tool that will help you  understand your options for paying for college or career school by providing you an early estimate of how much federal student aid they may be eligible for. Complete the estimator at this address:
