To apply for federal student aid, you need to create a FSA ID (for student and dependent student's parent) and then complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. You must Renew the FAFSA for each academic year; be sure to include the VCSU School Code of 003008 so we get your information.

To ensure that financial need is considered in the selection of scholarships for next year, current students must complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA before the Returning Students Scholarship deadline date of February 15, 2022. The Returning Students Scholarship Application is available only to current students returning for the next school year and is only available to complete from November 15 to February 15 of the current school year.

*Note:  The myStudentAid mobile app has been retired as of June 30, 2022.
