How To Apply
To apply for federal aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form.
The FAFSA is available starting January 1st for the 2024-2025 academic year.
Our Federal School Code is E00214 (select Harvard University School of Public Health). This code will need to be correct in order for our office to receive your completed FAFSA.
We strongly recommend students complete the FAFSA by January 15 to help us provide a complete financial aid information at the time of admission.
NOTE: Due to significant federal changes to the FASFA, we will not receive your FAFSA results until the end of January. However, in order for us to receive your FAFSA in a timely fashion, it is important that the FAFSA be submitted no later than January 15th.
