File the FAFSA

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application is required for all federal, state (Illinois residents), and Loyola University Chicago need-based funding. Loyola's federal school code is 001710. The FAFSA is required to be considered for Loyola need-based grant assistance. The priority filing date for undergraduate students is March 1. Graduate students do not have a priority filing date, but they should submit the FAFSA as early as possible.

    Filing the FAFSA

The FAFSA may be filed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Filing online is faster than using the paper version of the FAFSA. The online version also reveals and highlights errors for correction before your application is submitted, resulting in easier processing and a reduced need to submit additional documentation. Remember to complete the online signature requirements, which are done using a PIN. You can request a PIN online at www.pin.ed.gov.

(Note: The FAFSA is also available in Spanish.)   

When to File the FAFSA

File your FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1, 2009. Because many need-based funds are limited, they are often awarded by date of application. Filing early can be key to locking in the funding for which you are eligible, making your college decision easier.

If you want to know the amount of your award package by May 1, 2009, the following example may be helpful:

Where to get a FAFSA   

Note: Since the majority of our students choose to file the FAFSA online, the Department of Education does not make paper applications available to schools. If you would like a paper application, you must call 800.4FEDAID and request that one be mailed to you. Or, follow the links below to complete the online form and then print out the FAFSA . 

We recommend you file the FAFSA online. Not only is filing online is not only faster, but many errors are revealed and highlighted for correction before your FAFSA is even submitted, which leads to easier processing and reduced need to submit additional documentation.
