Students need only apply for financial aid once per academic year. The process takes at least 3 - 6 weeks to complete from the date of initial application, provided all paperwork, including the FAFSA, is submitted as requested by the Financial Aid Office.
Students who complete the process by the Priority Deadlines* (listed below) have the best chance to receive financial aid by the first week of the quarter.
However, meeting the Priority Deadline does not guarantee eligibility for aid, or that the aid qualified for will be of the type or amount desired.
*Priority Deadline: deadline to receive maximum consideration for funding.
