Documents and Forms

Other Forms may be required, in addition to the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid): for Fall 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024, and any terms or sessions within those time frames. If you are unsure what forms to choose, try "How To Apply" from - Application Steps from the Financial Aid main web page. 

Each aid applicant who meets the eligibility requirements for a 2023-2024 Renewal FAFSA by October 1, 2023, will be sent a Renewal Reminder e-mail or a Renewal Reminder letter between October 1, 2023 and February 2024. With the elimination of the paper Renewal FAFSA, it is particularly important that renewal-eligible students receive a Renewal Reminder, which informs them that they can use the Web to reapply for aid. The Department encourages students to update their address and e-mail address on their 22/23 SAR to ensure the most current e-mail and mailing address information is present.
