Get Financial Aid for School


We make it easier to get money for college or career school.  To get started, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form.  Then your college will tell you the types and amounts of aid you can get.  And we'll help you along the way.

 

Need financial aid? Here’s what you could get if you fill out the FAFSA® form.

Grants are free money for school and are often based on financial need.

Federal Work-Study provides you with a part-time job while you’re enrolled in school.

With federal loans, you borrow the money you need and pay it back at a low, fixed interest rate. We provide loans to students and parents.

While we don’t offer scholarships, many states, schools, or other organizations do—and we’ve got a scholarship search to help you find that free money. Scholarships are usually awarded based on your academic achievement or other factors, such as your background or where your parents work.

Getting federal student aid has never been easier.

STEP 1


Create Your Account

An FSA ID is your username and password combination that you use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education websites and to sign the FAFSA form electronically. If you're a dependent student, both you and your parent need FSA IDs.

STEP 2


Submit Your FAFSA® Form

The online FAFSA form will guide you step by step. Once you complete and submit the application, your information automatically gets sent to the schools you listed on your FAFSA form.

STEP 3


Review and Accept Your Aid

Your school will send you an aid offer listing the types and amounts of aid you're eligible for. Look carefully at your options. If you're offered loans, remember that you should borrow only what you need, and consider federal loans before private loans.
