Students seeking financial aid are required to apply every year using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Learn about recent changes to the FAFSA and view step-by-step FAFSA videos for help with the application. Although applying for financial aid is basically the same for all students, there are additional requirements and/or rules for different populations.

Concurrent Degrees

Students enrolled in a concurrent bachelor's and master's degree program will see a change in their financial aid eligibility when graduate student status is met.

Nondegree Students

If you are not formally admitted into an undergraduate program, but would like to enroll in preparatory courses necessary for admission, you may enroll through Continuing Education. Federal loans may be available to you on a limited basis.
