Priority Application Deadlines
The most successful financial aid applicants submit all applications and documentation well before class registration to ensure they are eligible to receive the most funding.
Financial aid applicants are encouraged to submit all required financial aid documents by the following deadlines:
- Fall – June 1
- Spring – Nov. 1
- Summer – May 1
Applications submitted after these dates will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis and could be processed after payment deadline dates. In this situation, students must make other payment arrangements before the payment deadlines.
