7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA
The ‘7 Easy Steps to the FAFSA’ is a video guide to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This tutorial is for the benefit of students, parents, and the financial aid community. The Office of Financial Aid hopes that you find it helpful in completing your 2013-14 FAFSA application accurately and in a timely fashion.
A college education is the most solid investment you can make toward crafting a prosperous future. For that reason, it is expected that you will contribute as much as possible to finance your education. But when funds fall short, financial aid — based on need, college cost and information provided on your FAFSA — can help fill in the financial gaps for your educational expenses. Need a financial package plan of action? We have experts for that.

Important Update: 2012–13 Federal Financial Aid Changes
Lifetime Pell Grant eligibility changes: The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012 (Public Law 112-74) reduced the maximum time frame during which a student is eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant to a maximum of 12 full semesters (or its part-time equivalent) effective with the 2012–13 award year. Therefore, a student's Pell Grant lifetime eligibility usage may not exceed 600 percent.
On Dec. 23, 2011, President Obama signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2012. The new law significantly impacts the federal student aid programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA).
For information on the changes made to various Title IV student aid programs, such as Pell, Ability to Benefit, Direct Loan subsidies and grace period allowances, please refer to the February 2012 Financial Aid Flash newsletter.
