Our Best Answer What is the FAFSA?
Although financial aid can come from many sources, the primary method of application for need-based awards from the government and the university is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The purpose of the FAFSA is to determine which financial aid programs students are eligible for by calculating their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) based upon their family’s financial information.
You can find instructions on completing the FAFSA on our website. Once you have completed the FAFSA, please allow 4-7 days for us to receive the information. For priority awarding, your FAFSA will need to be completed by April 15th and any corrections will need to be made by May 15th.
