Who is eligible?
To qualify for financial aid you must:
- Have a high school diploma or GED
- Be a US citizen or eligible non-citizen
- Be registered with the Selective Service (if required)
- Other eligibility issues may be identified in the FAFSA
Even if you have already filled out your FAFSA, you're not done with our application process. Financial aid comes in many forms—grants, loans, scholarships and work-study jobs. To receive any kind of financial aid, you need to apply. Once you find out what type of aid you may qualify for, there are other steps involved, so give yourself plenty of time to complete the process.
Important: Your financial aid is not automatically renewed. You must apply one time each academic year with the FAFSA. You do not need to reapply during an academic year even if you stopped attending one or more quarters.
