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, 2021. The 2021–2022 FAFSA is available to be filed as of October 1, 2020.
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.
