Application Process for Financial Aid

Application Process for Financial Aid

In order to apply for Federal Financial Aid, as well as most aid programs offered by the University of Maine at Presque Isle students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which must be submitted to the Federal Student Aid Programs in accordance with instructions on the form. This form can be completed online; a computer is available in the Student Financial Services Office for those students needing online access or assistance in filling out the FAFSA.

Appropriate signatures are necessary when completing a FAFSA. Most unmarried student applicants, who are under the age of 24, are required to provide their own signature as well as a parent signature. Both student and parent will need to have a FSA ID created, which you can do by clicking here. Safeguard and remember your FSA ID as it will be used year after year when filing your FAFSA.

To complete the FAFSA online, go to www.FAFSA.gov. Once your FAFSA is filed, you can check on the status, make corrections or add additional schools to receive your information. The University of Maine at Presque Isle school code is 002033.

Students should submit their applications at the earliest possible date. Financial aid awards are made on a rolling basis in the order that application files become complete in the Student Financial Services Office. Priority is given to students who complete their file by April 1. Completed applications for financial aid will be considered at any time during the academic year; however, you may find that some funding will be exhausted if you file beyond April 1.
