Fall 2019 Deadlines

December 6, 2019 - Last day to submit a Federal Direct loan, Parent PLUS loan, or GRAD PLUS loan request for a fall 2019 only loan.

Note: Established federal processing deadlines prohibit the college from processing a 2019-2020 FAFSA after the student's last date of enrollment. Students who have not filed a FAFSA for the 2019-20 academic year and who are no longer enrolled for the academic year have missed the deadline to be considered for Federal Student Aid programs for the 2019-20 academic year.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeals

Deadline to submit the 2020-2021 SAP appeals is Friday, August 14, 2020.

Priority Deadline for the 2020–2021 FAFSA

The priority deadline to submit the 2020–2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for fall 2020 and spring 2021 to the Financial Aid Office is March 1, 2020. The 2020–2021 FAFSA will be available to be filed as of October 1, 2019.

Note: All students should apply for financial aid every year. Students who missed the financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid, if eligible, but institutional funds become increasingly limited and there is no guarantee that it will be available on your account by the time the bursar bill becomes due.

Apply for a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is free, so be on your guard when searching for the FAFSA application: Filers should make sure that they use only the official Department of Education site.
