To become eligible for financial aid, you must start with the application process. Regardless of whether you are a past aid recipient, you need to apply annually for financial aid through completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the FAFSA website. When completing the FAFSA you will need to enter Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University school code 001479. By listing ERAU (Title IV School Code: 001479) as one of your school choices, we will receive your information electronically for processing. This application is valid from July 1 until June 30 of the following year. For more information on Federal Student Aid, please review The Guide to Federal Student Aid.
*Note that filling out FAFSA is free. Beware of websites and services who charge you for filling out the application. If you suspect a website is charging people, or if you need assistance, call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at (800) 433-3243.
All Students, parents, and borrowers are required to use an FSA ID, made up of a username and password, to access certain U.S. Department of Education websites.
Your FSA ID is used to sign legally binding documents electronically. It has the same legal status as a written signature. Don't give your FSA ID to anyone—not even to someone helping you fill out the FAFSA. Sharing your FSA ID could put you at risk of identity theft!
IRS Data Retrieval Tool
The U.S. Department of Education and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) have collaborated to develop a tool that simplifies the completion of the FAFSA application. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows FAFSA applicants and parents to request and retrieve their tax data directly from the IRS. Once this data is retrieved from the IRS, it can be transferred to the FAFSA application.
Use of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool:
