The first step in applying for Federal Financial Aid is completing the online FAFSA application. To get started, go to www.studentloans.gov. Emperor’s College school code is 026090. Your FAFSA and all associated Financial Aid documentation should be completed and submitted to the Financial Aid office at least three weeks prior to the start of the academic quarter.
