Applying for Federal Student Aid
Each student must complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Information regarding the FAFSA can be found at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA is available online at and can be submitted electronically. Electronic signatures - both the student and a parent, if applicable, are required. You will need to include Gnomon's OPE-ID, which is 040764, on the FAFSA. A Student Aid Report (SAR) will be sent via e-mail within three to seven days. Information on the SAR is necessary to determine a student's eligibility. After receiving the SAR, students must visit our Virtual Financial Aid Office (VFAO) and complete an Online Interview. Students are welcome to apply anytime during the Academic year, however we recommend that you work in conjunction with Gnomonís Admissions department.
