Financial Aid


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will now be available on October 1st of each year.

The priority deadline for submitting the FAFSA to most Montana schools is December 1st.  

If you’re a senior or the parent/guardian of a senior and want to get a jump start on the financial aid process, you can create your FSA ID now. This ID is used for filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and you’ll use the same ID every year that you complete the FAFSA.  Here are a few resources that provide a great overview for creating your ID and to the process of completing the FAFSA:
