FAFSA FILING:

  • If you have already filed a 2018-2019 FAFSA, be sure that Drake is listed as a school to receive your FAFSA information.
  • If you have not filed a FAFSA, complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA at https://FAFSA.gov
  • If you have already completed the 2018-2019 FAFSA with Drake listed and have not received a Drake Financial Aid Award Packet or an Actions Requested Letter, contact the Office of Student Financial Planning. 
  • If you plan to attend summer 2018, fall 2018, and/or spring 2019, you may complete the 2019-2020 FAFSA now. The 2019-2020 FAFSA will be completed with 2016 tax information.
  • If you received a request from Drake for additional information, for either FAFSA year, please respond as quickly as possible.

OTHER IMPORTANT STEPS:

  • Keep your address, telephone number, etc. updated in MyDUSIS.
  • Remember to have all transcripts forwarded to the Office of Admission as soon as possible.  Credit evaluation is important in determining your federal student loan eligibility.
  • If you already have a Drake Financial Aid Award Packet, remember that you must complete, sign, and return a copy of your Award Notice (Award Letter).  If you want to borrow a Federal Direct loan, return a completed and signed Loan Request Form to the Office of Student Financial Planning.
  • As a first time borrower at Drake, you may need to complete Entrance Loan Counseling and/or Master Promissory Note – see your Loan Request Form for more information.

The Office of Student Financial Planning is in Carnegie Hall, directly north of Cole Hall (Admissions Office). You can schedule an appointment or walk-ins are always welcome.  Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
