Apply for Financial Aid

*Tip: Students must re-apply for financial aid every school calendar year. Wait two weeks after filing your taxes to fill out the FAFSA online. Use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your tax information to your FAFSA.

Once your admissions application has been processed and you have retrieved your Pirate Portal username and password:
  • Pirate Portal > Financial Aid & Scholarships folder > Financial Aid Awards link > Choose year and Submit > Terms and Conditions tab > Read and Accept > Accept Award Offer tab > Accept Award
To apply for a student loan, additional paperwork is needed:

Tip: All forms must be filled out and returned to Financial Aid for your file to be considered complete. The priority deadlines listed below are the dates to have all paperwork and FAFSA done to ensure your file will be processed and you will receive funds in time for payment, if awarded. If you submit all of your paperwork and FAFSA after this date, there is no guarantee you will have funds available for your payment deadline and an installment/payment plan may be initiated to ensure your classes are not dropped. There is a $20 fee to initiate an installment/payment plan. (See Step 6 below)
