If you would like to apply for financial aid you will need to fill out a FAFSA form. Here are the links to our Financial Aid web page, the link for creating a PIN that you will need before trying to complete the FAFSA and then a link itself to the FAFSA. To meet Federal guidelines and be eligible for financial aid, one is required to take 2 courses per semester (6 hours). In the summer, that can be one class summer I and one class summer II to meet the requirement. Of course, more courses can be taken if one wishes.
If there are additional questions regarding the FAFSA or need further assistance with financial aid, please email Alivia Joes, email@example.com
We look forward to assisting you.
