Important Deadlines

Priority FAFSA Processing Deadline

While we accept applications all year, in order to ensure priority consideration, your results from the FAFSA and any other required documentation must be received in the Financial Aid Office by the following dates:

  • Fall semester: May 15
  • Spring semester: October 1

After these dates, applications will be processed on a rolling basis throughout the year, on a first come, first served basis (see “Regular FAFSA Processing Deadline” information below).

Regular FAFSA Processing Deadline

The priority dates to have financial aid processed:

  • Summer 2017 sessions: May 1
  • Fall 2017 semester: October 1

If the deadline is missed, we cannot guarantee that FAFSA will be processed before the start of classes. Students submitting FAFSA applications or verification paperwork after the deadline must make plans to pay for their classes. Students denied financial aid are still responsible for payment of tuition, fees and any other financial obligations to the college.


Summer 2017 Financial Aid: Pell grant (for eligible students) and limited institutional funds are available for summer courses for classes required for their degree program.
