In order to continue receiving financial aid, students must complete the application process each year, starting with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition, current students who receive federal financial assistance must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards.
You can complete the FAFSA online, or by returning a paper copy to the federal processor by mail. To request a paper copy, call 800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or 334-523-2691. If you are hearing impaired, contact the TTY line at 800-730-8913.
For complete instructions on how to complete the FAFSA, visit the Federal Student Aid Information Center.
