How do I begin the Financial Aid Process?

The process starts with a Financial Aid Application Interview

Contact us to schedule an interview.  Allow approximately one hour for all the paperwork to be completed.  During that interview, we will:

  • Assist you to complete the FAFSA
  • Submit your application to the federal central processing service
  • Estimate your eligibility for the various financial aid programs
  • Complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note, and a pre-loan informational interview if you wish to take out a loan
  • Inform you of any additional paperwork needed to complete the process
  • Inform you of what you will be expected to pay and when
  • Answer any questions you have about the costs associated with the program.
