    The Financial Aid Office is eager to assist you with the financial aid application process. Financial aid is funding that can be used to help a student pay for their educational costs.

    Before you begin the application process, you must create an FSA ID. Students, parents, and borrowers are required to use an FSA ID (made up of a username and password) to access certain U.S. Department of Education online systems. Your FSA ID is used to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information and electronically signing your federal student aid documents. Click here to begin the FSA ID process.
