STEP Students

Requirements and Deadlines

Documents Required

STEP students seeking financial aid for Summer 2018 through Spring 2019 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 2017–2018 (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

    Please complete and submit the online FAFSA application for academic year 2017–2018. Enter Stanford’s school code (001305) so that Stanford will receive your data.

    If you have already filed a FAFSA for 2017–2018, 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 2018–2019 (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

    Please complete and submit the online FAFSA application for academic year 2018–2019. Enter Stanford’s school code (001305) so that Stanford will receive your data.

You must provide FAFSA data for both 2017–2018 and 2018–2019 because Summer Quarter is considered to be part of the 2017–2018 academic year, while Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters are part of the 2018–2019 academic year.

Priority Filing Date

For the most advantageous funds through the FAO you should submit the three documents by March 15, 2018.

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.
