Complete the FAFSA
FAFSA can be found at studentaid.gov. Completing your FAFSA allows you to receive financial aid in the form of loans, grants, scholarships, and work study. The process will require the W2 of your guardian/s if you are a dependent. This W2 will need to be TWO YEARS PRIOR to the current year.
If you are an incoming high school student, please be sure to make that you have never attended college. If the FAFSA asks you to list colleges attended, leave it blank and click continue. If the site will not let you continue, earlier you marked that you had attended college before. Click reset page.
Completing the FAFSA is typically the most challenging part of this process. If you are having trouble, please reach out to us at the Welcome Center: 210-486-0040
For high school transcripts ask the counselor or career advisor at your school for help. To send a transcript from a previous university please look to your previous institutions website and search for send transcripts.
