Complete your 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by our priority deadline. By submitting your FAFSA by our March 1st priority deadline, you will also meet the PA State Grant May 1st deadline.
PHEAA (The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) may request additional information via e-mail, so please check your e-mail account(s) on a regular basis.
You and your parent will each need a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to sign the FAFSA. Securing a PIN is part of completing the FAFSA. This PIN will be used as your electronic signature.
You will use your PIN to sign your Master Promissory Note (MPN) on-line should you receive and accept a Federal Direct Student Loan and/or Federal Perkins Student Loan as part of your aid package.
IMPORTANT!!! - ACT 101 Eligibility
In addition to completing the Act 101 Financial Assessment Form you MUST complete the 2014-2015 FAFSA. The results of the FAFSA will be used to determine eligibility for Act 101.
Students selected for Verification may be required to provide income information and documents to confirm the information provided on the 2014-2015 FAFSA.

To be considered for financial assistance for the summer, you are required to complete the 2013-2014 FAFSA and submit the Summer Aid Application to our office. The Summer Aid Application will be included in the materials you receive in your acceptance packet from the Admissions Office.
Please DO NOT submit the summer application until you have submitted the 2013-2014 FAFSA.
If you submit the Summer Application, but do not submit the 2013-2014 FAFSA, you will not be offered federal financial aid.
If your 2013-2014 FAFSA is selected for verification, you cannot be offered federal financial aid until the verification is completed. If you were selected for verification and you need verification forms to complete this process, please contact the aid office directly.
If you have a student loan in your summer aid package, it will not appear on your bill/account summary if it has not been accepted.
