Financial aid from the federal government can help pay for education expenses at an eligible institution. Grants, loans and work-study are types of federal student aid. Applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to apply for this aid.

A limited number of DEAC-accredited institutions participate in federal financial aid programs. Please search theĀ DEAC Directory of Accredited InstitutionsĀ for more information about distance education institutions that participate in federal student aid programs.
