    A Way to Make it Happen

    Dean College will do everything that we can to help you make your Dean College education a financial reality. Each year 90 percent of our students receive some combination of Dean scholarships and grants. On average about 80 percent of our student body receive's federal and/or state financial aid.

    File Your FAFSA

    The FAFSA, a free application, is required for citizens and permanent residents of the United States who wish to apply for federal student aid, including federal grants, loans, and work-study. The FAFSA is also used to apply for state funds.

    Use Dean’s federal school code—002144—when you complete the online application at the Federal Student aid website.

    Once you have submitted your FAFSA, you and your parents may be required to send additional information to ensure the accuracy of FAFSA data. Approximately one-third of students who apply for federal aid are selected for verification. If you need to submit additional documents to our office, we will send you a letter detailing what information is required.
