Each year, we award and deliver over $59 million of loans, grants, scholarships and employment funding from university, federal, state and private sources. We understand that applying for aid can be confusing. We are here to help!
FAFSA Changes for 2017-2018
Students will be able to submit the 17-18 FAFSA application as early as October 1, 2016, rather than January 1, 2017. Students will also use earlier income information for the 17-18 FAFSA. They will be required to report their 2015 income information on the application. For more information about these changes, click here or contact our office.
Last Date of Attendance or Participation
Under federal regulations, we must confirm students' course participation for courses dropped/withdrawn from after financial aid is disbursed. Please note that dropping/withdrawing from a course could require you to repay, specifically for Pell Grant recipients. For more information about these changes, click here or contact our office.
