Apply for a FSA ID at www.fafsa.ed.gov, This will allow you to “sign” the FAFSA electronically, meaning the entire application process can be completed online.
Fill out the FAFSA by clicking the “Start Here” button and then complete each page of the form.
Use 015235 as the Title IV school code for Adult & Community Education courses. This will allow the school to electronically receive the results of your application.
Review your answers carefully and, if necessary, correct them before submitting your FAFSA.
Sign your application. You can electronically sign your application using your PIN, print a paper signature page and mail in, or wait for a signature page to arrive in the mail.
Submit your application by selecting the “Submit My FAFSA Now” button on the last page of the form. You will be taken to a Confirmation Page that shows a confirmation number and estimated EFC. Print a copy of the Confirmation Page for your records.
Once you apply for admission to Adult and Community Education and have been accepted, as long as you have listed the school on your FAFSA, we will calculate your aid and send you an aid offer, called an award letter, telling you how much aid you are eligible for at the school. The timing of the aid offer varies depending on when you are accepted and if there are any issues with your FAFSA that must be resolved prior to awarding(issues like verification, an unsigned FAFSA, or other errors on the FAFSA.)
Students must submit verification documentation within the
first 4 weeks of each Trimester. Failure
to submit this documentation may mean cancellation of financial aid eligibility
for their program. The Financial Aid Coordinator
will utilize the Verification Worksheet and any other requested documents to
correct a student’s FAFSA if required. The
Financial Aid Coordinator will notify students via email if their EFC (Expected
Family Contribution) and financial aid amount changes because of any
corrections to the FAFSA. In some
instances, the Coordinator may request that the student make FAFSA corrections. If a student is required to make corrections,
it will be necessary to log into the FAFSA, and click on “Make FAFSA Corrections.”
If there is reasonable cause to believe that an applicant for Title IV, HEA funds might have engaged in fraud or other criminal misconduct, they will be referred to the Office of Inspector General (OIG). In this event, the school will notify the OIG via fax.
Approximately 1 out of 3 students who submit a FAFSA are selected for an official review in a process called Federal Verification.
Incomplete or conflicting information on your FAFSA may lead to Verification, or your FAFSA record may be chosen at random.
If your FAFSA record is selected for Federal Verification, the Financial Aid Office will request signed copies of federal tax returns, a completed Verification form, and/or other financial documents from you (and your parents or spouse). We will then compare your financial documents to your FAFSA information and, if needed, we will adjust your FAFSA information.
Until we complete Verification, we can not process Federal Stafford Loans or Federal Pell Grants. Please respond quickly to prevent delays in processing your federal aid.
