Eligibility for financial aid is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on an annual basis. Students are encouraged to apply for aid as soon as possible on or after October 1st for the upcoming academic year even before they know their admission status. Some types of scholarships and waivers may be awarded based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA. You may want to file the FAFSA even if you don't plan to take out student loans.
