Financial Aid Dates to Remember

  • For the 2014-2015 aid year, students must have a valid FAFSA by the last day of the term for which they are enrolled or June 30th, 2015, whichever is sooner. The ability to be awarded is determined by meeting all eligibility requirements at the time the file is completed. This includes Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Students may only be awarded retroactively for semesters during which they met and maintained Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards and all other eligibility requirements.

  • Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeals deadlines: students who have failed SAP standards must have a completed SAP Appeal and/or Maximum Time Frame Academic Plan submitted to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office no later than two weeks prior to the last day of the payment period for which they are requesting aid. Please visit our SAP page for further information.

  • Verification Deadlines: Students must have a valid FAFSA by the last day of the term for which they are enrolled or June 30th, 2015, whichever is sooner for the 2014-2015 year. However, the ability to be awarded and/or retroactively awarded is determined by meeting all eligibility requirements at the time the student's file is completed. This includes Satisfactory Academic Progress. For the Pell Grant program, the student may submit verification documents no later than 100 days after the last day of enrollment, or two weeks before the last day of Summer term, whichever is sooner. Students may only be awarded retroactively for terms during which they met and maintained Satisfactory Academic Progress standards and met all other eligibility requirements. For the Direct Stafford Loan and Campus-Based Aid programs, the student may submit verification documents no later than two weeks before their last day of enrollment, or two weeks before the last day of Summer term, whichever is sooner. Students may only be awarded retroactively for terms during which they met and maintained Satisfactory Academic Progress standards and met all other eligibility requirements.

  • To ensure your financial aid funds are available to you on the first day of each semester, you must have a completed financial aid file by the following dates.  A completed file means all required documents have been accurately completed and submitted to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, and have been reviewed and satisfied by our office. Documents submitted that are pending or incomplete are not considered completed.  In addition, all eligibility requirements must be met.  It may take at least four weeks to process accurately completed documents; therefore, all accurately completed documents must be submitted to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office at least four weeks before the dates listed.     ● Fall:  August 1st     ● Spring: December 1st     ● Summer:  April 1st

Note: Students should consult the Student Timetable for each semester.  Add/drop deadlines may affect your financial aid. See the important dates below, and visit our withdrawal page for more information.
