Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

Students applying for financial aid should adhere to these deadline dates to allow for appropriate processing and review time to ensure that their financial aid is available for use prior to the start of a semester. The following deadlines are ‘priority' deadlines. Students meeting these deadlines should have ample notice of their awards prior to the start of the semester. All other applicants will be processed in date order. The Office of Financial Aid will still process the student's award package even if the deadline is missed; however, we make no guarantee that the funds will be available for payment if students apply late. If students miss the deadline and must pay upfront, they generally can be reimbursed for any aid for which they are deemed eligible
