Submit the FAFSA and ORSAA.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA® is a required application for all federal financial aid opportunities, including the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Direct Loans and Federal Work-Study Program. Students should complete the FAFSA® as soon as possible to ensure maximum opportunity to access the best financial aid. Apply for the FAFSA® each year beginning October 1.


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 required for the Oregon Opportunity Grant, Oregon Promise Grant, and certain OSAC Scholarships. Apply for the ORSAA each year beginning October 1.
