Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

“Students who submit their completed financial aid application by the Priority Deadline have the best chance to receive all the aid they are eligible for by the first week of class.”

You are strongly encouraged to apply for financial aid as early as January 1, although you may apply at any time during the year.

The application process takes at least 3 - 6 weeks to complete from the date of initial application, provided all paperwork (including the FAFSA) is submitted as requested by the Financial Aid Office. Completed applications are processed chronologically in order of date completed.

However, meeting the Priority Deadline does not guarantee eligibility for aid, or that the aid qualified for will be of the type or amount desired.
