Welcome Students!

Thank you for selecting Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University as your school of choice. The Office of Financial Aid is committed to assisting students in meeting the cost of a college education.
Financial aid has helped millions of students pay for their education beyond high school. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the key to some of the best resources available to you
to fund your education. Therefore, it is important to complete the FAFSA by March 1 annually. We want our students to take advantage of all the grants, loans, and work-study opportunities available to
them. Should you need assistance, our counseling staff is ready and eager to assist you with navigating through the financial aid process.

We hope the information provided on this website will answer most of your questions related to financial aid.

FAMU’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will Observe Constitution Day 

Florida A&M University Office of Financial Aid will observe Constitution Day on September 17 in memory of Louise Leigh, the founder of Constitution Day.

As outreach director for the California Bicentennial Commission in 1987, Leigh realized how little most Americans knew about the  Constitution.  "It is the most unique government document in the history of mankind,” said Leigh.  “It guarantees our freedom.  It is unique in that the government doesn't tell us what to do, we tell the government what to do."
In 1997, Leigh founded Constitution Day Inc., which is an American federal holiday that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution (September 17, 1787). The law establishing the holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of the Omnibus spending bill of 2004. The act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide educational programming on the history of the American Constitution as part of the Constitution Day holiday. 


For your convenience, there are now four ways to submit documents to the Office of Financial Aid:

(1) Fax to 850-561-2730
(Acceptable file types are Word, Excel, and PDF)
(3) Hand delivery
(4) US Mail
