Are there any deadlines I should be aware of?

The FAFSA cycle opens on October 1st before each academic year. We encourage all applicants to file as soon as possible once the cycle opens. Continuing students must apply for financial aid no later than June 30th of the calendar year before the upcoming award year. New students should apply as soon as possible. Applications from new students received after August 1 will not be accepted. Institutional funds are issued relative to level of financial need and availability.

What is “financial need” and how is it determined?

Financial need is determined by using both Federal and Institutional Methodologies. In general terms, the Cost of Attendance (COA) less the Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) equals total need.
