Applying for Admission

Here, we'll discuss learning how to navigate the school application process. For information on applying for federal student aid, click on "Funding Your Education."

Non-federal financial assistance programs and requirements often vary from school to school. Always check with your school before applying for financial aid.
Applying to schools means more than just filling out forms. You need to understand each school's requirements, gather information, meet deadlines, and pay any necessary fees for each submitted application.
In this section, you'll get a look at the school application process. It may seem a little overwhelming, but once you have a clear picture of everything that's involved, you can determine what needs to be done. Getting organized will help eliminate a lot of stress. If you have not already done so, go into MyFSA now and set up your own personal student account, so you can plan for college, apply online, track your favorite schools, and much more.

Not sure when you should start submitting your applications? Do you know when the FAFSASM is due? Refer to our timeline and stay on top of those deadlines.

Applying to Schools Early

If you know the school you want to attend, and even if you don't, you may have the option of applying early and getting a response in the fall rather than the spring. Be careful, because early applications are not always first-come, first-admitted. There are no "sure things," so take the time to fill out your applications. 

Make a "To Do" List
