Kurt
Kurt 
Education is the foundation upon which this country continues to build. Valley City State University serves as a vital link in this process by complying with federal regulations to enable graduate students to receive consideration for aid in achieving their goal. Applicants are eligible for consideration in regard to the Federal Stafford loan (both subsidized and unsubsidized).

Application Period and Deadline
The application period begins January 1 of each year for the following academic year. In order to have all paperwork completed on time, it is recommended that applicants start the application process at least three months before a semester starts. In order to apply for aid, applicants should first have a PIN # (which serves as an electronic signature) and can be applied for at: www.pin.ed.gov. Once the PIN is obtained, one can apply for aid online at: www.fafsa.ed.gov .
