Steps to Apply

Complete the FAFSA
That’s the Free Application for Federal Student Aid online form that you and your parents/guardians submit (if you are age 24 or younger) to be eligible to receive financial aid.

You should file the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 of each year for the next school year. You can tell FAFSA that you and your parents/guardians will be filling your taxes and use estimated figures for the form. Once you and your parents/guardians have filed your taxes, you both can go back to your FAFSA and use the IRS Data Retrieval Button to securely pull in tax information from the IRS database. ICC’s Financial Aid Code: 006753
