Step-by-Step Application Process for Graduate Students

1. Request a FSA ID, your electronic signature for FAFSA on the Web. Be sure to keep your FSA ID number(s) as you will need to file the FAFSA each year, sign federal loan applications, and access your student aid history online.

2. File the FAFSA after October 1st for the upcoming year. Be sure to include The College of Saint Rose school code–002705.

3. View and accept your awards online at The College of Saint Rose secure site.

4. If your FAFSA is selected for a process called, “verification”, submit signed copies of student (and spouse’s, if married) IRS tax return transcripts, along with a completed Verification Worksheet to the Office of Financial Aid.
