You might be eligible for a lot more financial aid than you expect
All students seeking financial assistance should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine the amount of money you are eligible to receive. The FAFSA is now available earlier than in prior years — you can file beginning October 1st. The FAFSA should be completed each academic year.
Central Piedmont FAFSA Code
All students should apply for financial aid every year. If you miss a financial aid priority deadline, you are still encouraged to file the FAFSA — you will be considered for federal student aid (if eligible), but funds may become limited.
