Step 3: Apply for financial aid.

Once you have completed your application and have been accepted into the program, we will start processing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Minnesota Dream Act Application. If additional documents are needed for the FAFSA, we will contact you. Requests for additional documents needed to complete the Dream Act will come from Minnesota’s Office of Higher Education.

It is very important that you respond to our requests for additional information. Failure to submit this information will impact our ability to provide you with a comprehensive aid award.
