Domestic students apply for need based assistance each year. (It is not necessary to reapply for merit assistance only.) Additional requirements, such as federal tax returns and verification documents, may be required in addition to the FAFSA and PROFILE.

To apply for federal grants and loans, citizens and permanent residents of the United States must complete:

Be sure to sign in to FAO often and check your document requirements as requirements may change.
