Applying for Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid can be a very confusing process.

Because each college or university has its own specific requirements for financial aid, you are advised to read all applicable material, and carefully follow the procedures. It is imperative that you pay close attention to the details and deadlines of each school. Not doing so may cost you thousands of dollars!

The 电竞竞猜 College Office suggests that you consult the Financial Aid Administrators or Officers of the schools to which you have applied. Please also consider consulting with a tax professional, financial planner, the websites listed below, and the agencies and programs listed in the Financial Aid Handbook.

Please see or contact Mr. Klein at if you have any questions!

Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is a form colleges and universities use to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid. This includes grants, loans, and work-study programs. Even though FAFSA is the application for federal aid, you will need to fill the form out in order to receive any state or college-sponsored financial aid as well.

To start, you must request a FAFSA ID for yourself and your parent/guardian to submit your FAFSA form online. If you forget your password, or ID, you can reset it.
