Applying for Aid

The First Step

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is required to establish eligibility for federal, state and university grants, loans and work-study jobs.

The form is used to calculate your Expected Family Contribution, which determines the types of aid you are eligible to receive. Most students who complete the FAFSA are eligible for student loans.

While the filing deadline is March 1, it’s best to file as early as possible. In fact, the FAFSA may be filed as early as Oct. 1.

The sooner you file, the more aid options will be available to you.

When applying, use the UNH federal school code (also called the Title IV Code): 002589

Fill out the FAFSA
