Application Process

  1. Know the FAFSA priority filing deadline: AUM has a priority deadline of March 1st each year. This means the Federal Processor must receive the FAFSA on or before March 1st. Please note that an electronic submission may take 2-5 business days to reach the Federal Processor. For priority consideration, you'll want to file at least a week prior to March 1st.

  2. Apply for an FSA ID: Create an FSA ID by visiting If you are a dependent student, your parents should also create an FSA ID as they will need to sign your FAFSA as well.

  3. Gather financial information: Collect income and asset information, federal tax returns, etc. for the year prior to the FAFSA award year. For example, if you are filling out the FAFSA for the 2016-2017 academic year, you will need information from your 2015 federal income tax return(s), W-2(s), etc. You will also need to list AUM's Title IV school code (008310) on the FAFSA to have your information released to this institution. We recommend students and parent complete federal tax return each year prior to completing FAFSA.

  4. Submit FAFSA: Go to to complete your FAFSA online. Make sure that you electronically sign your application with your PIN. If you are a dependent student, make sure that one of your parents sign with their PIN as well.
