IMPORTANT: We always suggest that students complete their aid application early and for the 2017-18 year we again encourage you to complete your 2017-18 financial aid application early. But if you received a Federal Pell Grant for the 2016-17 year we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to complete your 2017-18 FAFSA as soon as you can. You may be subject to new federal aid restrictions if your 2016-17 and 2017-18 FAFSA reports have conflicting information. The sooner you complete the FAFSA the sooner we may be able to resolve any issues.
The due date for renewal applications for students returning from a leave of absence for Spring 2017 is December 1, 2016.
Note: This information is for those students who are selected for the FAFSA verification process.
If your 2017-18 FAFSA is selected for the 2017-2018 verification process and if you will be a new student for Fall 2017 please plan to provide us with the additional documents and data by May 1, 2017.
