Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid

A college education is one of the most important investments anyone can make. Schoolcraft College understands that students often need help to finance their education.

Financial aid programs can provide students with options that may assist them in meeting educational expenses and achieving their educational goals. 


Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

To apply for federal, state, and institutional financial aid, you need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing the FAFSA is free, easy to complete, and gives you access to the largest sources of financial aid to pay for college. Be sure to include the Schoolcraft College School Code of 002315 so we get your information.
