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.
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.
To add an additional $1,000 to your university scholarship each year, simply take these three steps before July 16 for the fall semester or Dec. 15 for the spring semester. Just add our school code to your FAFSA application — 003645 — and you'll be on your way to an extra $1,000 per year. Haven't gone on an official campus visit yet? No worries. You can fill out your FAFSA first and then join us when you're ready.

It's that easy. Talk about Smaller. Smarter.
Start by going to FAFSA.gov. Make sure you have these 4 things handy:
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.
