Complete Your FAFSA

Students should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every winter, and are strongly encouraged to complete the application by March 15. The FAFSA is used to determine students' eligibility for need-based grants, student loans, and on-campus student employment. 

Beginning in early February, you may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to load financial information to your FAFSA directly from your Federal tax return – this will make completing the FAFSA, and subsequent financial aid application steps, much easier. Follow the FAFSA instructions beginning on Question 79 to use this feature.
