Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid Deadlines

Applications for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) may be completed at any time.

Students are encouraged to apply as soon as they have completed their current Federal Income Tax Return.

The priority deadline is listed below for each semester; we process applications on a first-come, first served basis. However, to be considered for early funding, we recommend that you apply in January and have your file complete by mid-April. You will then be considered for aid for the following academic year.
