2015 2016

Can you believe it's already time to think about 2015-2016? Beginning January 1st, 2015 the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available to complete online at fafsa.ed.gov. The 2015-2016 FAFSA is needed to be considered for financial aid for Fall 2015, Spring 2016, and/or Summer 2016. It is recommended that you complete the FAFSA no later than March 1st.

Be cautious when completing the FAFSA and go to fafsa.ed.gov. If you accidentally go to fafsa.com you will be charged a fee to complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is a free application. Also, if you wait to complete your FAFSA until a couple of weeks after you file your taxes you can use the IRS data retrieval tool to directly transfer your information from the IRS to the FAFSA.

Summer 2015

You can now request financial aid for Summer 2015. The Office of Financial Aid does not automatically award financial aid to students for summer sessions since many students travel home during summer. To apply for summer aid, the student should go to StuInfo, click on "Financial Aid (Check Your Aid)", choose the 2014-2015 aid year, and click on the "Apply for Summer Aid" button.

We will begin awarding summer aid around mid-spring semester. You will receive an email from our office once your summer financial aid eligibility has been determined. You will also see updated information in StuInfo once summer aid has been awarded.
