Financial Aid: FAFSA and scholarship applications


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2024-25 school year is now open! The sooner you complete the FAFSA, the better. Please be aware that FAFSA has changed for 2024-25 year and you may experience some processing delays: the U.S. Department of Education is sending schools FAFSA information much later than usual, so you may not see your award as early this year as you did last year.

Why should you complete the 2024-25 FAFSA?

  • FAFSA needs to be completed every academic year.
  • FAFSA is used for more than just Federal Financial Aid: some scholarships require it.
  • Don’t assume you won’t be eligible for anything – many factors are evaluated when determining your eligibility, not just your income.
