Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

To apply for federal and state assistance, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students can submit this form via the Internet at Some important considerations to note:

  • File early. Apply for financial aid every year after October 1. Apply as early as possible to maximize your eligibility for federal and state grants, loans, and other resources.
  • A FAFSA must be filed every year that a student is in school.
  • Ask questions. Contact the Office of Financial Aid at 502.272.7300 or 800.274.4723 if you have any questions. Also, ask about the financial aid workshops offered during the year.
