All US citizens and permanent residents who accept admission to a master’s degree program are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is required for any need-based loan program and/or federal work study. The form should be submitted as early as possible.  Graduate students are considered independent; therefore, no parental income or information should be entered on the FAFSA.  The Graduate School's federal school code for the FAFSA is 002920.
