Below is a summary of the Financial Aid process. For complete information, visit the full Financial Aid site or contact the Office of Financial Aid at 202.274.5060.
Students interested in receiving federal student financial aid in the form of scholarships, loans and/or grants must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online. It is important that students apply for financial aid as soon as possible even if they do not know all of the institutions to which they plan to apply for admissions. Additional colleges can be added to the FAFSA later.
All applicants will be assigned a PIN and asked to create a password. This will allow access to your financial aid application in order to add institutions and conduct periodic checks on the status of your application. Students are required to follow up on their financial aid application online using their PIN and password in order to learn if any information is missing from their application or to learn the amount of their award.
Assistance with applying for financial aid and completing the FAFSA is available from the Office of Financial Aid in Building 39-Room 101, or from the Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) on a walk-in basis every Monday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Building 38-Room 103. Assistance is also available from the EOC located at 1233 20th Street NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC. This office is accessible via the Red Line to DuPont Circle, South Exit. Please call that office for an appointment at 202.741.4730.
Please note: When completing the FAFSA, a copy of your most recent Federal Income Tax Return (or your parents’ return, if you are 23 years old or younger) or Income Verification (SSI/SSDITANF) is required. If you have any questions about financial aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 202.274.5060.
