Important Dates

Many college financial aid programs are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funds are exhausted. You can help maximize your opportunity to be considered for funds by paying close attention to important financial aid dates and the Academic Calendar.

Note: The FAFSA for the 2019-20 academic year will be available on October 1, 2018.  In general, we begin reviewing FAFSA results in December 2018 for the academic year that begins in Fall 2019.  The review and award process continues on a rolling basis throughout the academic year.  If at any time you have any questions about your application or award status, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.
