Applying For Aid
LOC School Code: 003501
Federal Priority Deadline: April 1
To maximize your award possibilities - complete and mail all documentation as soon after January 1 as possible. Some aid programs are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis and an early application receives priority consideration!
Step 1: Free Application For Federal Student Aid
Your first step in determining your eligibility is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available in three formats:
FAFSA on the Web - This easy, quick and secure method automatically checks for errors. Be sure to have all your information with you when you start the process. (i.e. Your tax returns and Parent's tax returns for students who are required to submit parental information.)
Renewal FAFSA on the Web - Students who applied for aid last year can use their U.S. Department of Education Pin Number to access the renewal FAFSA. Most of your information is already in the system. All you need to do is update the information!
Paper FAFSA - You can request a paper copy of the FAFSA from your high school counselor or stop by our office. We have plenty of application worksheets and student guides.
Be sure to list our school code (Title IV Code: 003501) to ensure that we will receive your FAFSA information for award processing.
Have you forgotten your pin number?
Or you don't have a pin number?
Request A Pin Number Parents can also request a pin number! Only one parent needs to request a pin number and the parent can use their individual pin number to sign each of their student's FAFSA.
Step 2: Your Student Aid Report
The federal processor analyzes your FAFSA information to determine an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Based on a federally mandated formula, the EFC is the amount of support that you and your family are expected to provide for your educational expenses. The results of your FAFSA are reported to you in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). Review your SAR carefully. Make corrections to any information that is incorrect. Also, you may be asked to supply additional or supplementary information to our office. Our office will review an electronic version of your SAR to see if additional or supplementary information is needed. If additional information is needed, a letter along with the necessary forms will be sent to you through the mail.
Step 3: Scholarships
For information about applying for scholarships, go to the Scholarships page.
Step 4: Your Award Letter
After your FAFSA application is complete, our office will determine your award eligibility. Awards are based on an established cost of attendance (COA) and your expected family contribution (EFC). Students taking all Regents Online Degree Program courses will have a lower cost of attendance than students taking regular on-campus based courses. Currently enrolled students may access Pipeline MT to view financial aid awards.
