FAFSA & PIN Application

The first step in the financial assistance application process is completion of the FAFSA. Click here to access FAFSA on the Web. The FAFSA collects information that will be analyzed for use by Francis Marion University's Office of Financial Assistance to determine the types of assistance for which you qualify. It is highly recommended that you and your parent(s) apply for a FSA UserID before completing your FAFSA.

Please remember to put FMU's Title IV School Code (009226).

The FAFSA must be completed for every academic year that you want assistance. Each academic year begins in the fall and ends in the summer. For example, the 2015-2016 FAFSA on the Web are for the Fall 2015, Spring 2016 and Summer 2016 terms at Francis Marion University.

FAFSA on the Web

FAFSA on the Web allows you to enter the FAFSA information into the program and transmit the information directly to the U.S. Department of Education. You and your parents will sign the FAFSA on the Web with the FSA UserID. If you or your parent do not have a FSA UserID, save your FAFSA on the Web and complete the FSA UserID application.  Once you and your parents receive your FSA USerID, go back into your saved FAFSA and sign with the FSA UserIDs.  Signing with FSA UserIDs saves 2 - 3 weeks processing time.
