Hi my name is Brooke Kramer and I am the financial aid officer with Argosy University in Salt Lake City and today we're going to talk about how to apply for grants. And the first thing you're going to want to do is complete the free application for federal student aid. What this application is is pretty much a measure for schools to know what you will qualify in federal aid. And for this form, you will be required to enter in your prior years 1040 tax form as well as your W-2s. Once a school can see what you qualify for in federal aid, they will notify you and this again is based on the expected family contribution number which is located on your results for your FAFSA. What this number is is pretty much telling us what your need is for school and how much the government believes that you could possibly give towards your own education.
