Steps To Apply For Aid
for admission to Governors State University if you are not already an admitted student. We cannot process your financial aid application until you are officially admitted to the university. Please submit your application as soon as possible.
Apply for a PIN number
with the U.S. Department of Education. Students and parents should both apply for their own PIN. If you or your parents have a PIN from a previous year, please use that. If you have forgotten your PIN, the site listed above will help you retrieve it. You will use this PIN every year you apply for financial aid. The PIN is also used to complete Master Promissory Notes and Entrance Counseling for Federal Loans.
