The 2024-25 FAFSA release has been delayed. It is currently expected to be released in December per the Department of Education.
To apply for financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa each year you remain in college. Additional information/requirements may be requested.
The FAFSA is available October 1 each year. Applications are accepted all year long, but some aid is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis so it is best to apply as early as possible.
For the Financial Aid Office to offer aid a student must:
- Complete the current aid year FAFSA.
- Be matriculated into a financial aid eligible program.
- Complete all the steps and requirements requested of you by the Financial Aid Office.
- Be meeting the standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress.
A student can accept his/her financial aid, in part or in whole, online through the Student Information System (SIS).
Financial Aid will not disburse unless:
- The student is enrolled in enough credits to warrant the specific aid fund.
- The student has completed all requirements of the aid fund.
- The student is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
Any student completing a FAFSA may be required, by the US Department of Education, to verify the information provided on the FAFSA. Students whose FAFSAs have been selected for the verification process are required to complete the verification process with their individual college. Refer to the Student Financial Aid Handbook for more information.
