To apply for financial aid visit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) website. Students must reapply each year. In addition, prior to filing the FAFSA on line students and a parent (if required) must have an FSA ID. An FSA ID is a username and password that you must use to log in to certain U.S. Department of Education (ED) websites. Your FSA ID identifies you as someone who has the right to access your own personal information on ED websites. Your FSA ID is used to sign legally binding documents electronically. It has the same legal status as a written signature. Don't give your FSA ID to anyone—not even to someone helping you fill out the FAFSA. A FSA ID can be obtained at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm. FAFSAs submitted without proper FSAIDs will be rejected and awards cannot be made until all proper signatures are received by the federal processor. The date required to file to be considered for financial aid through the State of Michigan is March 1.
