Complete the FAFSA

The most important step in financing your education is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Only by completing the FAFSA can you apply for loans, scholarships, and grants issued through the federal government and WV state programs.

  • Complete the FAFSA to be considered for the maximum amount of financial aid. Late completion may cause delays in processing and may limit the financial aid received.
  • FAFSA Deadlines
