How do I Know if my College is Affiliated with FAFSA®?

Nearly all schools offering degree or certificate programs are eligible to participate in the Federal Student Aid (FSA) program, including many online colleges and vocational schools.

The easiest way to see if your school participates in the FSA program is to use the Federal School Code Search tool. If the search tool pulls up a FAFSA® code for your school, that means your school is eligible and accepts federal aid.

You can also contact your school’s financial aid office directly to ask if they participate in the FSA program, or if they require the FAFSA® for any separate financial assistance options run by the school or the state.
