Students seeking need-based financial assistance must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible on or after October 1.
Seven Easy Steps to the FAFSA
Create an FSA ID at fsaid.ed.gov to electronically sign the FAFSA. Both student and parent (if dependent) must have an FSA ID. The parent whose financial information is being supplied on the FAFSA is the one to create the FSA ID. This will also be used to electronically sign master promissory notes should you apply for student loans. Protect this information as you would your social security number.
Complete FAFSA online. Be sure to list The University of Tulsa on your FAFSA using school code 003185. October 1 is the first day you can complete the FAFSA for each academic year. The PRIORITY deadline to apply for aid is February 15.
TU’s priority deadline is the recommended date for best consideration. Aid applications received after that date will still receive consideration. However, it is in the best interest of the student to apply as early as possible. Oklahoma residents eligible for the Oklahoma Tuition Aid Grant (OTAG) program should apply as soon as possible after October 1, 2016, as funds will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis until depleted.
TU encourages students and parents to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for importing tax information from the IRS to update the FAFSA application. Please click here to help you determine if you are eligible to use this tool.
