You can fill out the financial aid application online. All applications must be accompanied by a copy of your most recent Federal tax return, preferably form 1040.

If you do not file a tax return, you must submit other documents (e.g., ADFC, SSI, current unemployment benefit statement) that substantiate your statement of annual/monthly income.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.
