1. Create an FSA ID. This is how you (and your parent) electronically sign your federal student aid application and loan documents.
  2. File the FAFSA. That is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This is a requirement for all student financial aid. It is suggested that you utilize the IRS Data Retrieval, if possible, within the FAFSA. This will eliminate you having to look up the information from your Tax Return and save some time if you are selected for Verification after your FAFSA is processed.
  3. Use our school code on the FAFSA. It is 014128.
  4. Submit the FA APPLICATION to the Financial Aid Office.
