Complete the FAFSA

You can afford a private education

Because of the smaller classes and personal education, you might not think you can afford a private college education. You can. Last year, 97% of new, undergraduate students received financial aid. Those are good odds.


An affordable education starts with the FAFSA

Completing the FAFSA helps you get scholarships, grants, work-study and student loans. It only takes about 20 minutes, but it's totally worth it.

The earlier you complete the FAFSA, the better chance you have of maximizing your awards. Start getting the money you need for college — complete the FAFSA ASAP

Filling out the FAFSA

Start by going to Make sure you have these 4 things handy:

  1. Social Security Number
  2. Driver's License Number – don't worry if you don't have one
  3. W-2 forms or records of how much money you made in 2019
  4. 2019 tax records you filed in 2020 – a copy of your W-2 or 1040 tax forms are perfect

Create an FSA ID if you don't have one. Write it down because you'll use it next year to renew your FAFSA. If your parents plan to provide info, they'll need an FSA ID, too.

It usually takes about 20 minutes to complete and it's worth every minute. Let's get started.
