STEP Students

Requirements and Deadlines

Documents Required

STEP students seeking financial aid for Summer 2014 through Spring 2015 should file the following three documents:

  1. STEP Loan Application

    Please complete and submit the STEP Loan Application.  You will be prompted to print a copy of your completed application just prior to submission.
  1. FAFSA 2013–2014 (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

    Please complete and submit the online FAFSA application for academic year 2013–2014. Enter Stanford’s school code (001305) so that Stanford will receive your data.

    If you have already filed a FAFSA for 2013–2014, you should open your saved FAFSA and add Stanford’s school code (001305) so that your FAFSA data will be sent to Stanford.
  1. FAFSA 2014–2015 (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

    Please complete and submit the online FAFSA application for academic year 2014–2015.  Enter Stanford’s school code (001305) so that Stanford will receive your data.

You must provide FAFSA data for both 2013–2014 and 2014–2015 because summer quarter is considered to be part of the 2013–2014 academic year, while autumn, winter and spring quarters are part of the 2014–2015 academic year.

Priority Filing Date

For the most advantageous funds through the FAO you should submit the three documents by March 1, 2014

Notification

The FAO will send email notification of awards available through the University's data system, AXESS. Once you have decided to enroll at Stanford, all communications sent to you from the FAO will be sent to your Stanford email account.

Your quarterly financial aid amounts are available to view on AXESS and will be disbursed to the University bill at the beginning of each quarter. You can also track the status of your awards on AXESS.
