Financial Aid Process

How to apply. What to expect.

It can take up to eight weeks to process your application, so please apply early to avoid a payment contract or paying on your own. We have established the following priority dates for submitting any required forms and documents that Financial Aid may request:

  • Fall Classes: July 1
  • Spring Classes: December 1
  • Summer Classes: May 1

Use the following instructions to process your financial aid.  Not everyone will need to address each step, and for guidance you should always feel free to contact the Financial Aid Office.
