Renew Your FAFSA/WASFA TODAY!

The 2023-24 FAFSA and WASFA applications are now open. You must renew your FAFSA/WASFA every year to receive aid. The 2023-24 application covers aid for summer 2023 - spring 2024. The priority deadline for summer and fall quarter next year is April 30th, but students who submit earlier may qualify for more aid and will be notified sooner about how much aid they can expect to receive.

Student Loan Debt Relief Is Blocked

Courts have issued orders blocking the U.S. Department of Education's student debt relief program. As a result, at this time, Federal Student Aid is not accepting applications. They are seeking to overturn those orders. If you've already applied, Federal Student Aid will hold your application. Subscribe and check the studentaid.gov website for updates. Information will be posted on studentaid.gov as soon as further updates are available.
