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 Personal Identification Number (PIN) 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 2013-2014 FAFSA on the Web are for the Fall 2013, Spring 2014 and Summer 2014 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 PIN. If you or your parent do not have a PIN, save your FAFSA on the Web and complete the PIN application. Once you and your parents receive your PIN, go back into your saved FAFSA and sign with the PINs. Signing with PINs saves 2 - 3 weeks processing time.
