How and When to Apply for TOPS?
To apply for TOPS, the student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov or the TOPS On-line Application at www.osfa.la.gov. The FAFSA must be completed by students who qualify for federal grant aid, and by students who are seeking other forms of financial aid. Only students who can certify that they do not qualify for federal grant aid may use the TOPS On-line Application. IMPORTANT: In the event of a budget shortfall, students completing the TOPS On-line Application in lieu of the FAFSA will be the first to lose their TOPS award.
