Submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) unlocks aid that will not otherwise be available. The federal deadline for filing the 2023-24 FAFSA is June 30, 2024, but deadlines have already passed for many 2023-24 state grants. The Department of Education will not begin accepting FAFSA applications for the 2024-25 school year until December 2023 (which is a delay from the usual October 1 start date). This application will use the family’s 2022 federal income tax information.
CBU’s FAFSA code is 003482.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
Undergraduate and graduate students wanting to apply for federal, state, and institutional funds must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information on the FAFSA is used to establish eligibility for the various financial aid programs offered at CBU. There is no separate institutional application to complete.APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID
