Before applying for financial aid, you will need a Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number (PIN). Your PIN will be used each year to electronically apply for federal student aid and to access your Federal Student Aid records online.

Your initial seat deposit is found in your acceptance letter. The financial aid process will begin once you have paid the full deposit.
If you need additional funding besides the Stafford Unsubsidized Loan, you will need to apply for a credit-based loan. The two options for credit-based loans are the federal Graduate PLUS loan and the Sallie Mae Smart Option Loan.
Additionally, on www.studentloans.gov, you will need to select "Complete Master Promissory Note" for each direct unsubsidized and/or Graduate PLUS loan you accept. If you are seeking a co-signer, you must complete the PLUS MPN after each time your co-signer has endorsed the PLUS loan request. This step must be completed in order for your financial aid funds to be requested.
Financial Aid Awareness Counseling is located on www.studentloans.gov. Although it’s not required, it’s strongly recommended for students who have previous student loans and who would like additional budgeting assistance. Financial Awareness Counseling offers resources and information to help you understand your financial aid and assist you in managing your finances.
Your Financial Aid Award notice will be available on the Student Portal. You may view your customized Financial Aid Award, which will include the student loans you are approved for, scholarships (if applicable), VA benefits (if eligible), etc.
Disbursement of your financial aid typically occurs via electronic funds transfer (EFT) within the first few weeks of class depending on the specific lender or loan type. For quicker delivery, sign up for direct deposit on the Student Portal. Otherwise, a check will be issued.
