FAFSA Information

Students can easily accept financial aid awards and defer fee payment via MySeminoleState, the online student portal. Students who are eligible for financial aid must accept their awards before they can be processed. Deferring fees will allow students to delay paying until the College and Higher One process their financial aid.
