How to Apply for Grants
In order for a student's account to be reviewed for federal and state grant eligibility, the student must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To complete a FAFSA, please visit www.fafsa.ed.gov. In order for the student's eligibility for grants to be determined each academic year, the student must renew their FAFSA each academic year. Since some grants have limited funding available, it is important to complete your FAFSA early each year and be sure to review the annual priority deadlines.
How to Keep Grants
Be sure to renew your FAFSA each academic year and adhere to priority deadlines and meet the Standards of Academic Progress.
