An Investment in Your Future

How do I apply for financial aid?

Visit to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. On the application, you might be asked for a school code. If you would like Southwest Schools to receive your information, please use code below:

It takes approximately 10 business days from the date that you submit the FAFSA, for the school to receive it. If you haven’t already done so, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment with our admissions office during this time. Once we receive your FAFSA we will email you eligibility information.
