Applying for Need-based Aid
To apply for all forms of need-based aid, you need only fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This form is required for students seeking any federal or state aid (including loans, grants, and work-study). You may fill out the form online at the FAFSA website. Paper copies of the form may be acquired either from your high school guidance counselor or from our financial aid office.
The earliest date for submission is October 1 for students applying for fall 2021 and later.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- An FSA ID (Don’t have an ID? Create one here.)
- Identification documents (driver’s license, social security card, permanent residence card, etc.) for you and your parents
- Financial documents (W-2s, tax documents)
- Transylvania’s School ID: 001987
Submit the FAFSA form electronically.
