Steps to receive aid

Complete the free, online UPIKE application

In order to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you’ll need to create an FSA ID. This username and password will be unique to you, and you must use it to log into the Federal Student Aid website. The FSA ID acts as a legally binding signature in order for you to accept future federal financial aid. Create your FSA ID with an email account that you will maintain during your college years.

Visit the FAFSA website site and complete the application. The FAFSA can be completed any time after October 1 each fall using your tax return information from an earlier tax year. The 2020-21 FAFSA will utilize tax information from 2018. Remember to use UPIKE’s FAFSA code: 001980.

 

Mobile Application Instructions:

Students and parents can also complete the 2020-21 FAFSA using the myStudentAid app. You can down the app by clicking on your device’s app store below. The myFAFSA component—which is used to complete the FAFSA form—is the app’s featured function.

“As a first-generation college student the financial aid process seemed intimidating to me and my family, but UPIKE financial services staff came to my high school and held a workshop to teach us how to complete the FAFSA. Once I received my award letter, my UPIKE admissions counselor sat down with me and fully explained my financial aid package, line-by-line.”
