Financial Aid and Scholarship Announcements

The financial aid process doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are some quick steps for understanding how to apply.

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid on FAFSA.
  • FAFSA processing can take up to 2 weeks if filed on-line or 4 weeks if filed by mail.
  • The federal government will send an eligibility report to your home campus. At the same time, you will receive an email from the federal government with details about your application status.
  • Your home campus then issues an Award Letter detailing your financial aid or possibly requesting additional information before it can process your Award Letter. Submit everything the home campus requests to keep the process moving along. Ask the Center staff to help you fax these to the financial aid office at your home campus.
  • If required, sign and return the Award Letter to your home campus.
  • And always, we are happy to help you!
