Applying for Aid
To be considered for any of these options you must complete the U.S. Department of Education’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The Excelsior College federal code used for this application is 014251.
Make sure you complete the FAFSA for the year that aligns with the Excelsior academic term in which you’ll be enrolling. See guide below:
Summer Term: use 2020-2021 FAFSA
Fall Term: use 2021-2022 FAFSA
Spring and Summer Terms: use 2021-2022 FAFSA
Fall Term: use 2022-2023 FAFSA
Submit your FAFSA along with your request for course approvals to your academic advisor. This allows you to work with your Excelsior College financial aid advisor to determine the best options for you.
