How do I apply for Financial Aid?

The FAFSA is the primary application needed to be considered for federal and state financial aid. You should complete the FAFSA is you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident.


Both the student and his/her parent (if applicable) are required to use a FSA ID, made up of a username and password, to electronically sign the FAFSA.  The FSA ID is used to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information and federal student aid documents. To create an FSA ID, please visit the following website: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm.

You should complete the Dream Application if you are an undocumented/AB 540 student.

If you need assistance completing either application or creating a FSA ID, visit the computer lab next to the Admissions and Records Office in the Student Services Building.
