How to Apply for Financial Aid
Students may apply for Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at fafsa.gov. If the unsubsidized loan amount is exhausted, Federal Graduate PLUS Loan may be available. Private loans may be an option if no other sources of financial aid are available.
Students who would like to utilize federal aid are encouraged to complete their FAFSA at least 1 week before the start of their term to allow for processing time. Generally, students with no additional information required will receive an email confirmation of award within 3-5 days of receipt of the electronic FAFSA data. Maine residents are encouraged to complete the FAFSA by May 1 each year to meet the deadline set for the Maine State Grant program.
