Applying for Federal Financial Aid

To determine your eligibility for Federal financial aid at the Carolina School of Broadcasting, you must complete the following three steps:

1. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at 

Things you may need:

The FAFSA application process will identify your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as well as several other key aspects that will be used to determine your overall Title IV financial aid eligibility.

2. Complete Virtual Financial Aid Office (VFAO) Interview online at

The Department of Education will process your FAFSA and email you a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR will contain your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). With this information, please proceed to and register on the site. Once registered, you can fill out an interview. The interview information along with your FAFSA information will be used to process and award your financial aid. Once the CSB financial aid has your FAFSA and interview, a financial aid estimate will be prepared for you.

3. If you want to use Federal Direct student loans to pay of portion of your tuition, complete your Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling session online at
