The first step for applying for Financial Aid is to complete a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) application on the web. The students can link to the FAFSA website from the Financial Aid website. They also can go directly to the governments website at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Candidates must list CCSU on the form and provide the CCSU Title IV code of 001378. The Office of Financial Aid will receive an electronic student aid report (ISIR) and, then, notify the student of any other paperwork that is needed (i.e. copies of signed tax returns, W2's and a verification worksheet for verification) if they are selected by the government.
