Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is the application for the Federal Pell Grant and all federal financial aid programs. It also serves as the application for the Louisiana TOPS Scholarship. We encourage all students, regardless of their financial situation, to file the FAFSA. The institution's cost directly affects a student's calculated financial need.

A student must complete the FAFSA each year. Use FAFSA On The Web to file your FAFSA. It is a good idea to complete the FAFSA Worksheet first and use it as a guide when filing on-line. If the parent's tax return has already been filed with the IRS, the IRS Data Retrieval Tool can be used when filing the FAFSA and will expedite the processing time. Both the student and parent will need to electronically sign the FAFSA with a PIN. Both PINs can be requested at the conclusion of the FAFSA. You will need to provide Centenary's FAFSA code — 002003.
