Please check the box indicating that you desire to use Federal Financial Aid as your payment method.

2. Obtain an FSA ID

Prior to applying for FAFSA, you should obtain an FSA ID online at https://studentaid.ed.gov or www.fafsa.gov. This username and password serves as your electronic signature and may be used to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), make corrections to your Student Aid Report (SAR), and monitor federal loans that you receive. If you are a dependent student, a parent should also request an FSA ID which can be used as their electronic signature on the FAFSA.

3. Complete and Submit the FAFSA

The application can be found at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Make certain to indicate our school code of 042440 on the FAFSA.  If you have already completed a FAFSA, retrieve it and add our school code.
Monitor your email for important notifications concerning your SAR. The Office of Financial Aid will receive your FAFSA information and will contact you if necessary.

If you have any questions about applying for FSA, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at finaid@caluniversity.edu or 866-687-2258.
