Financial Aid Deadlines
We encourage all families to meet all published financial aid deadlines. If you submit a financial aid document after a published deadline, your financial aid may be delayed and/or reduced.
The Student Accounts Office assesses late fees and places restrictions on past due accounts. To avoid this expense and/or inconvenience, we encourage all students to meet applications deadlines so that your aid will be available in a timely fashion.
If at all possible, we encourage you to file your application materials well in advance of the deadline dates.
