Completing the FAFSA | Southern College of Optometry
What's Next?

New! The FAFSA can be completed beginning October 1st. 

You must complete this form via the web at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. You must have an FSAID or mail in a signature page.

Please designate SCO as the school to receive your information. Our Title IV School Code is 003517.

Don't forget to include parental information, if you are interested in our HPSL campus-based loan. For 18/19, you will use 2016 Federal Taxes.

It is important for current students to complete the FAFSA by March 1, and for entering students by June 1. If you have specific questions about filling out the FAFSA, you may call (800) 4FED-AID, or SCO's Financial Aid Office at (800) 238-0180, option #3.

Other supporting documents may also be required of you, such as IRS tax transcripts and W-2 forms or you can use the IRS data retrieval tool on the FAFSA.

Once you file the SCO application, we will send you periodic status reports to keep you informed of any additional documents required. If anything seems to be amiss, contact the financial aid office. All correspondence will be via SCO email.
