  • The Student Financial Services Resource Center provides you assistance with FAFSA and TAP online applications, along with additional information, financial aid counseling, and assistance in completing your forms. The office conducts regular daily workshops to help you with your financial aid applications and operates a Financial Aid lab to allow you to file your FAFSA and TAP on the web.  You can also find the answers to your questions about completing the FAFSA at the following US Department of Education website .


    FAFSA on the web is immediate. In contrast, the response to a paper application takes 6-8 weeks. When you file your FAFSA on the Web, you will be able to apply for TAP on the Web as well. Have the following documents when filing on-line:


    • Your (and your parent's if required) 2014 federal and state tax returns, W2s and other financial records.
    • 2014 Statement of Child Support received/paid.
    • 2014 Combat pay or special combat pay (military)
    • Housing, food and living allowances paid to members of the military, clergy and others (including cash payments).
