This program allows eligible Pennsylvania residents to obtain financial assistance for undergraduate study at any PHEAA-approved institution of higher education. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) serves as the program’s application. Applications should be filed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov if you cannot do so, call 1-800-4FEDAID and request a paper application.
May 1 - immediately proceeding the academic year for: 1) all renewal applicants 2) new applicants who plan to enroll in an undergraduate baccalaureate degree program, and 3) those in college transfer programs at two-year public or junior colleges.
August 1 – immediately preceding the academic year for first-time applicants who plan to enroll in: 1) a business, trade or technical school, 2) a hospital school of nursing, or 3) a two-year terminal (i.e. nontransferable two-year degree) program at a community, junior, or four-year college.
*It is a good idea to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid as early as possible when there is still money available. If you wait to file the FAFSA, there will be less funding available to your student. FAFSA forms are available online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov
