Applying for Aid

5 Easy Steps to Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships encourages students to complete their FAFSA.

Most of the questions on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form want to know your situation as of the day you sign the application. However, there are some instances in which you’ll want to (or be required to) change the information you reported. Learn more here on how to correct or update your FAFSA form.


For the 2024-25 academic year, requested documents should be submitted within 14 days via Student Forms. We strongly encourage students to submit all documents no later than April 25, 2025, for maximum aid consideration.

No financial aid can be disbursed for the academic year if a student fails to submit the required documentation.

To ensure timely processing of your application for the academic year 2024-25, it is important to note that all required documents must be submitted within 120 days of your enrollment for the year.

Fall semester enrollment end date – December 20, 2024

Winter semester enrollment end date – April 25, 2025.

Summer term deadline – September 1, 2025.

Please note that failure to meet these deadlines could result in a loss of aid eligibility.

Special Circumstances

Certain students and their families may encounter situations that impact their ability to cover educational expenses. Should there be a shift in you or your families financial situation, it's important to reach out to us at the earliest opportunity. Review the different circumstances to determine if an appeal would be beneficial.

Appeals should be submitted two weeks prior to the end of the term to allow for review and additional aid disbursement. Our Office makes every effort to review these appeals within a two week timeframe of receiving the request.
