Apply for Financial Aid: File Your FAFSA

The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is your ticket to grants, loans, or work study aid from the federal government and, if you’re a Pennsylvania resident, the state government.

Aid is awarded each spring for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer terms.

So, file your FAFSA!

IUP code: 003277

Filing Deadlines

  • 2014–15 academic year: File January 1–April 15, 2014, for maximum aid consideration.
  • 2015–16 academic year: File January 1–April 15, 2015, for maximum aid consideration.

How to File Your FAFSA

  1. Review the FAFSA Worksheet (pdf) – See what kind of information you’ll need to provide.
  2. Get a Federal Student Aid PIN. Your PIN lets you electronically sign your FAFSA. If you’re providing parent information, a parent must also sign your FAFSA, so he or she will also need a PIN.
  3. File the FAFSA online. Click the green “Start a New FAFSA” button, and you’ll be taken step-by-step through the filing process.
  4. Pat yourself on the back! Financial aid will be coming your way.
  5. Five minutes later: Review the Aid Application Process Checklist to see what your next steps are. Have you applied for scholarships?
