FINANCIAL AID FILING DEADLINES

Financial Aid application deadlines for "priority consideration":

March 1, 2015 for 2015-2016 - CURRENT STUDENTS
November 1, 2014 for SPRING 2015 Admissions

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.
