How to Apply for Aid

Students can apply for financial aid like grants or student loans using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you prefer a mobile app, the FAFSA can be completed on the myStudentAid app, available on the App Store (iOS) or on Google Play (Android).

CSN uses your FAFSA information to determine your federal aid eligibility. Please be sure to list CSN in the School Selection portion of the FAFSA. Our Federal School Code is 010362.

Please refer to these FAFSA videos for help with applying and understanding financial aid.

Additional assistance for filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be found by - reviewing How Financial Aid Works or by attending one of our FAFSA Workshops.
