In Step 1 you will submit your Preliminary Application for Aid, which always begins with the submission of the Student Application. Once the Student Application form is submitted, a personalized list of requirements will be generated for you to complete. If you apply for need-based aid and are under the age of 29 on or before September 1 of the academic year, the submission of the student application will also generate a required Parent Application (and supporting documentation). Once all of your requirements are received, we can begin reviewing your application to determine your provisional financial aid eligibility for the upcoming academic year.
