Information for Resources

Financial aid information is available in many formats, and in an effort to provide more information, we offer the following online resources to assist with questions related to completing the FAFSA and the overall financial aid process.

The following videos are provided by the Federal Student Aid Office of the U. S. Department of Education.  

Are you ready to attend college or career school, but need financial aid to help fund your education? Check out this video to learn how the office of Federal Student Aid provides more than $150 billion in grants, loans and work-study funds.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows students to apply for grants, loans, and work-study funds. Check out this video for info about the FAFSA and the resources available to help fill out this important application.

Please note your annual income information is used to complete the FAFSA:

  • 2020 income for 2022-2023 FAFSA
  • 2021 income for 2023-2024 FAFSA

The first step to applying for federal student aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Students and parents of dependent students need their own FSA IDs to electronically sign and submit the FAFSA. Watch this video on creating your FSA ID.
