How to Apply for Federal Financial Aid Programs

Students must complete and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year to apply for federal student financial aid and to apply for most state and college aid. This application is used to determine eligibility for Financial Aid Programs. Certain types of aid are awarded as funds permit on a firstcome, first-served basis to those demonstrating need. All participants are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Applying online with FAFSA on the Web is faster and easier than using a paper FAFSA. To apply for financial aid, complete the FAFSA online at www.studentaid.gov. The Federal School code for UACCB is 014042.
