Apply for Financial Aid

Submit the FAFSA® or ORSAA

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®)

The FAFSA® is the application used for all federal financial aid opportunities, including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Direct Loans, and Federal Work-Study Program. The state of Oregon also uses the FAFSA®® to determine eligibility for state aid.  Students should complete the FAFSA® as soon as possible to ensure maximum opportunity to access the best financial aid. Complete the FAFSA® each aid year. Use the Federal Student Aid Estimator and see what federal student aid you may be eligible to receive.

Oregon Student Aid Application (ORSAA)

The ORSAA is an alternative to the FAFSA®. Students who are not eligible to complete the FAFSA® may apply for the ORSAA. Do not complete the ORSAA if you are a U.S. Citizen or a legal non-citizen. A completed ORSAA is used to determine eligibility for state of Oregon aid, such as: Oregon Opportunity Grant, Oregon Promise Grant, and OSAC Scholarships. Complete the ORSAA each year beginning Oct. 1.
