Parents and Families
Hello and welcome! Our staff will help you understand all the steps of the financial aid process, from the first step of completing an application for financial aid to the awarding of student financial aid.
Although the FAFSA calculates student federal financial aid eligibility, it is also necessary for a student to file a FAFSA if a parent wishes to take out a federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan to help cover the educational costs not paid for by the student’s financial aid award.
For parents and families of Undergraduate students beginning fall term 2017 get started with the 2017/2018 Financial Aid Timeline. Be prepared to complete the 2017/2018 FAFSA on October 1, 2016.
Due to federal privacy regulations that do not allow student information to be shared without a student’s consent, dependent students must complete a Request for Release of Confidential Information form to allow their financial aid information to be shared with parents.
