Chicago State University recommends that prospective graduate students begin to plan early for financing their education. To start the application process in order to establish eligibility for a federal student loan(s) or the federal TEACH Grant, students must complete the FAFSA. For information on completing the FAFSA process, please access our Apply for Financial Aid (FAFSA) web page.
Please Note: Students who are selected for Verification by the U.S. Department of Education are required to submit documentation necessary to verify the information submitted on the FAFSA. No federal aid can be credited to student accounts until Verification is completed.
