Application Process for Student Aid Programs Administered by the
Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education
Arizona resident students may apply for any grants administered by the Arizona Commission for Postsecondary Education in which the applicant meets the minimum criteria. Grant descriptions and criteria may be found on the “Grant Descriptions” tab. Applications are available for the upcoming academic year beginning in July. Funding is limited, so it is recommended that applicants submit the grant application as early as possible.
Begin the application process by clicking the “Students Apply Here” link. This will bring you to the secure, online grant application.
- New applicants will need to create a user id and password (click on the “create login” link). It is important that applicants write down their user id and password as this information will be used each year to reapply for grants.
- Once an applicant has created a user id and password, an account activation email will be sent to the applicant. To activate the account please click on the link provided in the email. After the account has been activated, the applicant may complete the grant application.
- The grant application has four simple steps:
Step 1 – Student Information (name, address, etc.)
Step 2 – Student Educational Data Survey
Step 3 – Program Application (specific grant application)
Step 4 – Supplemental Information (if applicable)
