FINANCIAL AID FILING DEADLINES
Financial Aid application deadlines for "priority consideration":
February 15th for NEW APPLICANTS
March 1st for CURRENT STUDENTS
You may still be eligible for some programs even if you apply after the deadline. Priority is given to early filers for limited grants, scholarship funds, and work study. If you file late you may also be responsible for paying your charges from your own resources or need to set up a payment plan with FIT and wait for a refund once your aid is processed. The final deadline is usually the beginning of the last month of your last semester.
If you are graduating this semester, are leaving FIT, or are going below half-time (at FIT half-time is 6 credits in your degree program) and have Direct Stafford Loans, it is required that you complete an Exit Counseling Session. A list of sessions can be found on our website at Direct Stafford Loan Counseling Sessions. If you contact us and let us know which session you will be attending, we will prepare a personalized folder for your session. You may call us (212) 217-3560 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are receiving your first Direct Stafford Loan at FIT you must complete an Entrance Counseling Session before your loan can be disbursed.. If you were unable to attend any of the Entrance Counseling Sessions at the beginning of the semester you may still complete your Entrance requirement online at StudentLoans.gov. If you have not completed your Master Promissory Note (MPN) you may also complete that on this same website StudentLoans.gov.
