The process of applying for aid can seem complicated and time consuming. We want to make it go as smoothly as possible for you.

UPDATE: FAFSA Submission Summaries (previously known as Student Aid Reports) are now available within 1-3 days after FAFSA submission.

If you have received your FAFSA Submission Summary: 

  • Check it and make any necessary corrections.
  • Once CSM has it, we will send you further information.

If you have not submitted your FAFSA yet, be sure to do so as soon as possible!
