Financial Aid Awards

The Office of Financial Aid will begin notifying students of their financial aid eligibility for each academic year according to the following schedule:

Incoming students

For admitted students who have their FAFSA results to us by March 1, an initial award should be available by the first of April. 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.

Returning students

On-time financial aid applicants (FAFSA results here by May 1) who have met the standards for academic progress, should have awards available by mid-June. Awards will be viewable on Porches.

If we receive your FAFSA results after May 1, you will be considered a late applicant and will be awarded after the on-time applicants. Being a late applicant can put you in jeopardy of losing need-based funds.

Keep in mind that these additional factors (.pdf) may affect your award.
