The purpose of financial aid is to bridge the gap between what you and your family can afford and the total cost of your education. We encourage every student to apply for financial aid and pursue every possible resource, including scholarships, grants, loans and employment.
To receive federal financial aid and other types of need based financial aid you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.ed.gov. Our federal school code is 001624. The process will be quicker if both you and your parent(s) have an FSA ID number. If you have not already received an FSA ID number, you can obtain one at fsaid.ed.gov. If you need assistance completing the FAFSA, you can utilize this tutorial: https://www.finaid.ucsb.edu/fafsasimplification/ or contact the Office of Financial Aid at 208-467-8638, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
