Financial Aid Awards

A number of factors go into timing the release of financial aid awards: your admission to a degree-seeking program, having FAFSA results on file and our SAP review (returning students). With that in mind, the Office of Financial Aid generally begins the new school year award cycle in mid-July.

If we receive your FAFSA results after we begin awarding, you can generally expect to receive your financial aid award within 7-10 business days. All students will receive an e-mail notification to guide you through the steps to view and accept your awards online.
