Applying for FAFSA - Grants & Loans

admissions-2@2x

1. Apply

In order to establish your eligibility for financial assistance, you must first complete the initial Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When you’re filling out the form, use our CIAT school code 042598 and have additional financial documents, such as your tax returns and pay stubs, ready.

2. Processing

When you submit your FAFSA, the US Department of Education generates a Student Aid Report (SAR) that calculates your financial need and determines your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). CIAT will receive a copy of your application and begin processing how much financial aid (grants and loans) we can award you.

3. Award

Last, but not least: your financial award. Once we determine you qualify for financial assistance, you must review and sign your Master Promissory Note (MPN), a legal document in which you promise to repay your loans, with interest and fees, to the US Department of Education. Please read it carefully!

Federal Aid

You can also seek federal aid in the forms of the Pell Grant Program, Stafford and PLUS loans. These financial aid packages are a common way to pay for your educational expenses. The Pell Grant Program, unlike a loan, offers aid you don’t have to pay back should you qualify. Stafford and PLUS loans are also widely-used options with basic eligibility requirements and offer an array of interest rates and repayment plans. You can complete your online application at studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa, using our CIAT school code: 042598.
