Applying for financial aid
Saint Martin's encourages students to complete and submit the Free
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) may be completed
online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Students are required to complete a FAFSA application each year to be
considered for financial aid eligibility.
The FAFSA application will be available online beginning January 1.
The application requires approximately 30 minutes to complete.
The Saint Martin's University priority deadline is March 1. If the
student and/or parents have not yet completed their current years tax
returns, the income information can be estimated on the FAFSA
application to meet the priority deadline. However, once their taxes
have been completed the student and/or parent will need to go back on to
the FAFSA application and use the
IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
In order to submit your FAFSA application, you will need to request a
Personal Identification number (PIN). Instructions on how to apply for
the PIN are available at www.pin.ed.gov.
New students must be admitted to the university and have completed
their FAFSA application in order to receive an award letter. Please
note: if the student is required to submit additional documentation to
the Student Financial Services office to verify information on their
FAFSA, their original award letter may change. Student Financial
