The Office of Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to educating students regarding the various aid programs that make attending college affordable for all.
Important Notice! Each year students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for financial aid. In the past few years, the form has been available October 1. This notice is to update you that the FAFSA will be available for completion beginning December 31, 2023. The change in availability is due to the federal government FAFSA Simplification initiative for 2024-2025.
Each student and parent (dependent students only) must have an FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA. In preparation for filing your 2024-2025 FAFSA, if you or your parents/spouse do not yet have an FSA ID, you should begin this process now. An additional change for 2024-2025 is that parents without a Social Security Number can apply for an FSA ID, although student applicants must still have SSNs to receive Federal Student Aid. For more information on FSA ID creation, attend a virtual FSA ID informational workshop at https://www.hesaa.org/Pages/FAFSA.aspx or go to studentaid.gov to create an account.
For more information, the Office of Financial Aid will be conducting 2024-2025 FAFSA Information Sessions as detailed below:
