Apply for Student Aid

Apply for Student Aid

Check out Penn State Altoona's Office of Student Aid web page to familiarize yourself with state, federal, and Penn State student aid information and application deadlines.

Notification dates for your student aid awards are determined by the awarding agency. For example, in late March, Penn State begins emailing student aid award notifications to students who were offered admission, and who completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by Penn State's March 1 preferred filing deadline. The FAFSA form can be submitted beginning October 1, even if you have not accepted your offer of admission.
