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 a PIN assigned by the U.S. Department of Education. These PINs act as an electronic signature and are therefore mandatory when filing on line. A PIN can be obtained at www.pin.ed.gov. FAFSAs submitted without proper PINs 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.
