Important Financial Aid Dates
Students should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as possible, preferably one month prior to the dates below to allow adequate time for processing. Applications received before the priority date below will be considered for the maximum amount of grant aid. Applications received before the guarantee date will be processed prior to the start of the registration period.
