If you haven’t already done so, please speak to your Admissions Representative and ask for the Full Sail Financial Aid Packet to be sent to you.
In the meantime, follow this link – http://www.fafsa.ed.gov – and start the financial aid process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). (If you are not a citizen or eligible non-citizen of the United States with a valid social security number, email your Financial Aid Advisor for international financial aid options instead.) Our school code is 016812. To make things go faster, register for a PIN first and have copies of your latest tax return or W-2 by your side for the 2011-2012 FAFSA. Even if you're unsure of which route you're going to take with financial aid, filling out the FAFSA now gives you the opportunity to explore all of the financial aid options available to you.
Starting with the 2012-2013 FAFSA, the Department of Education has strongly recommended using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool that is now available. The Data Retrieval Tool will automatically import your tax information from the IRS 2 weeks after filing electronic tax returns, and 8 weeks after filing paper tax returns. Please note the following types of tax returns will not be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool:
- Head of Household
- Married Filing Separately
- Amended Tax Returns
- Foreign or Puerto Rico Tax Returns
Even if you're unsure of which route you're going to take with financial aid, filling out the FAFSA now gives you the opportunity to explore all of the financial aid options available to you.
Once you have sent in your Enrollment Application with the $75 application fee, you will receive a personal identification number from Full Sail giving you access to Launch, our incoming student web portal. The Financial Aid department will be in constant communication with you via this portal, to help guide you through the process of securing any grants or loans you may qualify for.
By checking Launch frequently, you can access, download, and print required documents. We'll also provide you with links to important websites so you can research scholarships and loan programs that may be right for your situation.
Your Financial Aid AdvisorEnrollment Guide will work with you until your file financial aid package is complete and you have started Full Sail. Though you will need to renew your financial aid periodically through out your enrollment, our goal is to help you build a solid plan for tuition payment and, if needed, living expenses, until your graduation from Full Sail University.
