The first step in applying for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The U.S. Department of Education offers a free online application process for your convenience. Be sure you select the correct FAFSA year for the school year you will attend Portland State University. Each school year at PSU begins fall term in September.


The FAFSA for the 2017/2018 school year which begins Fall 2017 is open now.

Applying isn’t the last step; your FAFSA has to be processed, and then you get an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which PSU will use to figure out how much aid you can get.
