What's new in Financial Aid?

Information on this page will change regularly to account for new happenings in financial aid.

  1. The 2016-17 Application for Study-Away Scholarships is now available.
  2. Students can complete the 2016-17 FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov.  The FAFSA can be signed electronically with a FSA ID.  The FSA ID replaces the PIN students and parents used previously.
