Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the most important document you will need when seeking federal student aid. A current FAFSA must be on file at the Office of Financial Aid for any type of federal or state student aid including work-study and loans.

This is a free application that is used to determine financial need. You must mail your FASFA to the federal processor or file online.

To be considered for financial aid at ENMU, you must list Eastern New Mexico University as a school of interest in Step VI. Eastern's school code is 002651.

Once ENMU receives your FAFSA from the federal processor, your application will be evaluated, and we will make an award offer.
