Steps to Apply for Financial Aid

Basic steps to apply for aid are the same each year:

  1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the upcoming academic year
  2. Complete the Online EVMS Financial Aid Application
  3. Budget Increase Guidelines - for unusual expenses
  4. Wait listed?  DON’T WAIT on financial aid forms.  File on time.  You may file your FAFSA at any time, but will have to wait to complete the online EVMS Financial Aid & Scholarship Application until you have received your network credentials to the student portal from the Network Information Center or your program. 
  5. Confirm you are credit ready 
  6. If needed later in academic year, students enrolled in per credit hour programs may need to file a Revised Education Plan to update enrollment plans.
