Please be aware of all key dates and deadlines in the financial aid process. Thank you!

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

Completing your application for financial aid by the deadline gives you the best chance to receive all the aid you are eligible for by the first week of class.
