The Financial Aid Office is dedicated to helping students find additional sources of funding to help meet the costs of receiving a quality education.
This checklist will help walk you through the steps necessary to apply for financial aid. We strongly recommend you complete these steps in the order in which they are listed.
If you don’t have one already, apply for a Department of Education PIN to be used as an online signature for your FAFSA. Retain your PIN for use each year.
Fill out the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov - Information from this application is used to determine if you're eligible to receive money from federal grant, loan, and work-study programs. In addition, it is used to evaluate some forms of institutional funding. Multnomah's school code is 003206.
Visit www.multnomah.edu/myfinaid to view and complete any other documents needed to process your aid. (Note: You cannot login to MyFinAid until Multnomah has received your FAFSA. Upon receipt, you will receive email confirmation from the Financial Aid Office instructing you further.)
Before an offer of financial aid will be granted, Multnomah requires the student be accepted for admission. Therefore, we suggest students work simultaneously on the financial aid process and the admission process.
Remember: A current FAFSA is required in order to receive any Multnomah or federal financial aid.
