How to Apply
Funding your education is easier than you think. You can get started immediately by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid - FAFSA (for U.S. citizens and permanent residents), which asks you to provide financial information such as income and assets. Completing the FAFSA is well worth the time investment. You could potentially receive thousands of dollars toward your education costs.
If, along the way, you or your family need assistance with the FAFSA, we will take you through each step and answer any questions you may have. To start the application process, click on the links below or contact a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid at LIU Riverhead.
