For your convenience, many of the things you need to do and learn related to your aid can be done on the web. If you choose to use the secure systems included in the list below, be sure to safeguard your access codes to them.

These sites are for the basics; ask us if you have any questions.

1) To apply for financial aid on the web, you need to get a Federal Financial Aid PIN, file the FAFSA on the web, and file the TAP on the web. See application filing details on our
APPLY page.
