Free Application for Federal Student Aid

Complete Your FAFSA to Get Federal Aid

To apply for federal financial aid, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

As part of the FAFSA submission process, both the parent and the student will need to create an Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) - learn more at studentaid.gov.

Note: International students are not eligible for federal or state financial aid, so there is no need for non-U.S. citizens to submit a FAFSA.

Upcoming Changes

The '24-25 FAFSA is available now, but S&T will not receive information from the US Department of Education until mid-March.

  • If you would like to receive an estimated financial aid package before April 2024, you can complete your FAFSA now and then share your results with S&T.
  • By sharing your results from the FAFSA you'll be able to get an accurate estimated financial aid package from S&T before the FAFSA results are available to us.

Learn more about FAFSA changes and how to get your estimated aid early (see FAFSA changes).
