How to Apply

Applicants can help ensure their financial aid applications are given maximum consideration by carefully reading the following instructions and submitting all materials to the Financial Assistance Office or the appropriate agency as early as possible.

 

Step 1

 

Complete a FAFSA online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov (school code is 013780)

 

Step 2

 

Students who want to receive Federal Stafford loans should complete a Stafford loan request form. Download the form. Completed forms may be faxed, scanned/emailed or mailed to the Financial Aid Office.

 

Applying for a Graduate PLUS loan requires students to go online to begin the loan process. The website is www.StudentLoans.gov. This loan is credit-based and the federal government will determine your eligibility.

 

Step 3

 

New borrowers must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance counseling to receive federal loans. This is done online at www.StudentLoans.gov. There are 2 separate MPN’s (Stafford and Grad PLUS). Both will need to be completed if requesting both loans.
