Typical financial aid package for new freshmen:
FAFSA code: 002371
The earliest a student may apply for financial aid is January of the year that the student begins college. Because the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) asks for information from the prior year's IRS form 1040, we strongly recommend the completion of the 1040 before filling out the FAFSA form.
Priority is given to students who apply before May 1. For more information, feel free to contact the Financial Aid office at 866-853-2455.
