Need assistance with tuition?

First, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.

By filing the FAFSA, you will be considered for all aid for which you might be eligible. You and your parent (if you are a dependent) will also apply for a FSA ID. With a FSA ID you and your parent can sign your application electronically, check the status of your application and make any corrections to your FAFSA form.

The myStudentAid Mobile App is Now Available!

Students and parents may now download the myStudentAid app from both the Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android). Learn more about the FAFSA mobile options here.

Priority Deadlines
Fall Semester: May 15 Spring Semester: October 15 Summer Semester: March 15

You must complete the FAFSA even if you feel you may only qualify for loans. You also may be requested to complete a FAFSA if you are applying for certain scholarships. You should complete the FAFSA at least two months prior to starting classes or as soon as your federal tax return is completed. You will need to reapply for financial aid each year; you can starting filing next year’s FAFSA on October 1. If you need help completing the FAFSA or need more information on financial aid, please contact us.

Some description

Once your FAFSA has been completed and electronically signed, you will submit it to the U.S. Department of Education, which will determine your EFC and determine your eligibility. Each school that you have listed on your FAFSA will get the results of your FAFSA.

What Happens After I Complete the FAFSA?
Additional paperwork may be required in order to process your financial aid. If you are selected in a process called verification, the school will request a copy of your federal tax transcript and/or documentation of untaxed income. You will also be required to submit a Verification Worksheet. Clark State will notify you of any required paperwork.

Once your financial aid has been processed, you will receive an e-mail notification that your Financial Award Letter is available for review. To view your Financial Aid Award Letter, please visit the Self Service on the myClarkState portal. Log in using the user id provided to you on your acceptance letter or on your class schedule. If you are a new student and have not registered yet, please contact the Financial Aid Office directly.
