First Step: Apply for Financial Aid

The first step in applying for aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA form is available at

Be sure to add the Shadyside Nursing School code: 006577.

The FAFSA helps decide your financial need based on factors such as:

  • Income
  • Assets
  • Debts
  • Family size
  • Number of family members in college

Without a completed FAFSA, you won't be eligible for federal financial aid like federal loans and Pell Grants.
