Updating a fafsa
for the purposes of federal student aid since the definition differs from that used on federal income tax returns.Financial aid consists of federal, state and institutional funds such as grants, loans, work-study and scholarships. The FAFSA application requires a federal school code. Financial aid is typically awarded for both the fall and spring semesters.
As a committed and current student, you also have access to PROWL, LMU’s interactive student portal.
On PROWL you can accept or decline financial aid awards, register for classes, check student account balances and much more.
The easiest way to apply for TAP is through the FAFSA. New York State (NYS) residents attending NYS schools can link directly to the TAP application from the FAFSA submission confirmation page.
If you exited the FAFSA before completing the TAP application – and you filled in your New York State address and a New York State college on the FAFSA – HESC will automatically receive your information in about three days. At the beginning of the online TAP application, you will be prompted to create a HESC-specific user name and personal identification number called a Hesc PIN.
You’ll find the IRS data retrieval tool in the Financial Information section of your FAFSA.
