The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will determine your eligibility for federal grants and loans, state grants and scholarships and some private scholarships.

File the FAFSA (UAF's School Code: 001063)

The FAFSA should be submitted every year and is available October 1 for the following fall. There is not a deadline for the FAFSA, but we recommend completing before February 15 to be considered for all UAF scholarships. The state of Alaska requires the FAFSA by June 30 for state aid, including the Alaska Performance Scholarship.
