The 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is now available. The FAFSA is used for the PA State Grant application process, as well as several additional programs we administer. To stay updated, return to this site often.

If you already completed your 2024-25 FAFSA, check out our Student Aid page for more information about applying for the PA State Grant.

  • Prepare

  • Apply or Renew

    To be considered for a PA State Grant, you must fill out the FAFSA and complete the PA State Grant Form. Most renewal students do not have to complete the PA State Grant Form.

  • After You Apply or Renew

    Sign in to your Account Access mailbox to view your PA State Grant status or to make changes to your school or program information. If you are a renewal applicant, make sure your information is up to date.

Did You Know?

  • The PA State Grant deadlines are different for first-time applicants, renewal applicants, and summer-term applicants.
  • If you miss the PA State Grant deadline for the academic year, apply anyway. Late applications (for terms other than summer) may qualify for awards if funding permits.
