College Financial Aid

Have you applied for Financial Aid yet?

The FAFSA opens on October 1, 2020 and should be completed by March 2, 2021. All students applying to a Community or four year college should apply, even if you think you will not qualify for financial aid. At Sierra College, just by filling out the FAFSA application and attending full-time, students can receive Two Years Free! If you plan on attending Sierra College in the Summer you need to complete a 2020-2021 FAFSA in addition to your 2021-2022 FAFSA that you need to have for Fall. Sierra College offers Financial Aid Videos for anyone who needs help.

Step 1--Create FSA ID for both Student and Parent

Step 2--Log In to FAFSA Apply and begin application (you’ll need your W2 and social security number)
