Financial aid for college starts with filing a FAFSA

The first big step toward paying for college is to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Filing the FAFSA is the only way to receive federal financial aid for college, such as federal grants, work-study and loans. By filing the FAFSA (Davenport ID Code 002249), you also provide valuable data that helps us determine your eligibility for Davenport University scholarships and other ways to pay for college.
