FAFSA

  • The main way for students to recieve financial aid is to file a FAFSA. FAFSA stands for "Free Application for Federal Student Aid". Students fill out the form with their parents and submit it as soon as possible after January 1 of their senior year.

    Oregon residents who submit a FAFSA, automatically apply for:

    • The Oregon Opportunity Grant(Need-Based)
    • The Federal PELL Grant (Need-Based)
    • Federal Work Study Program
    • All college campus need-based aid programs
    • FAFSA is used to determine if students are eligible for Stafford Loans and if parents are eligible for Parent PLUS Loans
    • Filing a FAFSA is also a requirement for some scholarship applications
