Because financial aid is awarded on an annual basis, these procedures must be followed each year. While admission is not required to initiate an application for financial aid, new students will not receive confirmation of their status until the Office of Financial Aid is notified that the admission process is complete.
- The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) should be completed as soon as possible after January 1, but not later than March 1, preceding the academic year for which assistance is requested. Students are requested to file the FAFSA on the internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Electronic filing is an accurate and fast means of filing for financial aid.
- Upon request, applicants must submit all pages of completed tax forms for verification by the Office of Financial Aid.
