Complete the FAFSA
The 2021-22 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online at www.fafsa.gov, beginning October 1, 2020. Completing your FAFSA form allows you to be considered for federal student aid which includes grants, scholarships and loans.
Any student seeking Federal, State or Institutional assistance must have a completed FAFSA on file. Be sure to use Bowie State University’s school code -002062 to ensure we receive your information.
Remember it is always better to complete your FAFSA early.
The Federal Student Aid office provides helpful short videos on the following topics:
- How to fill out your FAFSA
- Tips for parents when filling FAFSA
- What happens after you submit your FAFSA
Tax information entered in the FAFSA may also need to be verified with IRS Data Retrieval or an IRS Tax Return Transcript.
The State has an extensive array of financial aid programs in the form of grants, scholarships and other awards for students. Be sure to complete the FAFSA application by the state deadline which is March 1st.
