FAFSA Mobile App mystudentaid You may use you mobile device to apply
SENIORS: FAFSA is the Key.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key that opens the door to financial aid. It serves as the application for most of the financial aid from federal and state programs and from colleges and universities. Even if you are not sure that you will need financial aid, we recommend that you fill out a FAFSA anyway -- it's free.
The 2020-21 FAFSA will be launched on October 1, 2020.Seniors/Parents: To apply for federal financial aid(grants, work-study and loans) and the Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant Program(OTAG), you and your parents MUST COMPLETE the FAFSA. Even if you don't think you'll need financial aid (or qualify for it), it's important that you fill out the FAFSA, just in case. Once the form is processed, you'll receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) and award notifications or "packages" from each of the schools you listed. Packages can include any combination of scholarships, grants, loans and work-study opportunities to help you meet college costs. You can complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. If you apply online, you and your parents will need to request a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov, which allows you to electronically sign your FAFSA application. Call 800.FED.AID or ask your counselor if you need help. Students may begin applying after October 1st.
