School participation in financial aid program

I work for a postsecondary institution that would like to participate in the U.S. Department of Education’s financial aid programs.  What are the requirements and how can we apply?

First time applicants interested in participating in Federal Student Aid programs will find minimum eligibility requirements and other information at the initial applicants site. To apply, please visit the electronic version of the Application for Approval to Participate in the Federal Student Financial Aid Programs. The School Participation Division for Federal Student Aid provides information and assistance to schools interested in applying or updating their information.  For further assistance on this matter, please contact the office that serves your state.
To access guidance and policies for participating schools see Information for Financial Aid Professionals.
