Deadlines

Recommended deadlines to apply for federal and state financial aid for each semester are listed below. If you have not completed your aid application by these dates, be prepared to pay for tuition and all related fees.

The FAFSA must be renewed each aid year.

FALL - July 1††††††††† SPRING - November 1††††††††SUMMER - March 1

Our office will continue to process all applications received after the deadlines; however, there is a possibility that late applications will not be awarded by the start of classes. If a studentís financial aid is not awarded by the tuition and fees deadlines, students must be prepared to pay their own tuition and fees. Reimbursements will be mailed out to students according to their eligibility.

The financial aid award year begins in the fall term and ends at the conclusion of the summer term. Students who plan to enroll summer semester and have not previously applied for financial aid must complete the current year FAFSA and/or HOPE application.

It is recommended that you apply for financial aid as soon as you decide to apply for college. Do not wait to be admitted to the college before applying for financial aid. Depending on your situation, the financial aid application process can be lengthy and waiting for acceptance to a specific school could cause your financial aid not to be ready by payment deadlines. Take a look at the FAFSA 101 page for more information.
