Application Procedure

In order to be considered for financial assistance, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted to the appropriate processor.

Students who have completed the FAFSA previously should receive a Renewal FAFSA Reminder Letter . The Renewal FAFSA Reminder Letter will be mailed to students at the latest address on file from the Pell Grant Processor. Updates to the application must be made and returned to the processor after January 1.

Federal Pell Grant information should be mailed to the address on the envelope provided in the application booklet. The Student Aid Report (SAR) which is generated from your application, should be reviewed by the student and/or parents for accuracy. All instructions on the face of the form should be followed.

Priority consideration will be given to students who have submitted all requested information by published deadlines.
