FAFSA FILING:

  • If you have already filed a 2020-2021 FAFSA, be sure that Drake is listed as a school to receive your FAFSA information.
  • If you have already completed the 2020-2021 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 2021, fall 2021, and/or spring 2022, you may complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA now. The 2021-2022 FAFSA will be completed with 2019 tax information.
  • If you received a request from Drake for additional information, for either FAFSA year, please respond as quickly as possible.
  • If you have not filed a FAFSA, complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa

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 Offer and want to borrow your offered Federal Direct Student loan, complete Loan Request at https://drake.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0dpZ6RJJ5aKZM2x.
  • As a first time borrower at Drake, you may need to complete Entrance Loan Counseling and/or Master Promissory Note. This can be done at https://studentaid.gov/.

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.
