Applying for Financial Aid

1. To apply for federal and state financial aid, you will need to fill out an application called the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Prior to doing so, you and your parent (if applicable) will need to set up the Federal Student Aid ID.  This will permit you to sign your FAFSA electronically.  Click here for a short informational video.

2. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  online.  This is the application to apply for all government funded aid.

3.  Fill out a SOWELA Scholarship Application.

4.  Once SOWELA receives your FAFSA, we will send you an email regarding any follow up paperwork that is needed to determine your eligibility.
