How to Apply for Financial Aid

All students enrolling in an eligible degree, certificate or diploma program from Penn Highlands must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be eligible for Federal and State financial aid. The FAFSA is available online at https://fafsa.ed.gov and should be completed as soon as it is available on October 1st of each year. A new application is required each academic year and is based on the prior-prior year tax information. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA by the Penn Highlands priority deadline of April 1st of each year.

ALL STUDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO COMPLETE THE FAFSA EACH YEAR.
