Financial Aid & Tuition Planning

We strive to help make our students’ tuition planning as easy as possible. We strive to educate you on any loans you may receive at the Academy and to assist you in becoming a responsible borrower. We know that finances can be a scary topic, but putting a practical plan together that feels right to you, as well as being manageable with your expected salary, is the commitment of the Financial Aid staff.

Financial Planning Made Easy
We have a financial plan for everyone!

First Time Completing a FAFSA?
If you have never completed a FAFSA, here
is some helpful information:

1.) You will need to apply for an FSA ID
online. This feature has replaced the
four digit PIN number that was previously
used to complete the FAFSA.

2.) If you are a dependent student, your
parent will also need to apply for an FSA ID.
Generally you are a dependent if you're
under the age of 24, single, and have
zero dependents that you support.

Need questions answered in order to
apply for an FSA ID or complete the
FAFSA? Contact the Federal Student Aid
Information Center at 1-800-433-3243.

Have you created your FSA ID with incorrect
information such as entering the wrong social
security number or date of birth? Please
contact the FSA ID helpline for assistance in
correcting the issues: 1-800-557-7394, option 1.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Completing the FAFSA is free and quick, generally taking less than 30 minutes for students to complete. Beware of any websites that charge or ask for a form of payment! 

We have compiled a list of the most popular questions future and current students need assistance with when completing the FAFSA. Below are the correct responses, regardless of what program you are enrolled into or interested in:  

     a. The degree or certificate: certificate or diploma (of less than 2 years)
     b. Enrollment status: full time OR ¾ time
     c. Our school code: 041836
     d. Housing plan can be either off campus OR with family

The FAFSA does ask questions pertaining to you (date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, etc.) and your finances (tax return, cash savings, etc.). Depending on your situation, you may be required to include similar information regarding your parent(s) or spouse. Please review this short list of documents you may need as you complete the FAFSA here.

If you have never completed a FAFSA before, be sure to review the information under First Time Completing a FAFSA? section above.

I completed my FAFSA; now what?
Submitting your FAFSA is the first step; next, your FAFSA has to be processed. Once processed, you will receive your Student Aid Report, commonly referred to as a SAR, which contains your Expected Family Contribution, or EFC. The EFC is what the Financial Aid office at your school uses to calculate how much aid you will be awarded.

Once the Academy receives your FAFSA, one of our dedicated Financial Aid Administrators will call you to review your estimated eligibility. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us with questions. Our Financial Aid Administrators are available via email at or via telephone at 262.697.6000 x17.
