Applying for Financial Aid

It is always best to apply for financial aid as early as possible. The earliest you can apply is January 1st for the fall semester. Although not necessary to receive aid, we recommend that you apply as soon after that date as possible. The most common mistake students make is waiting until they make their final decision about what college they will attend before applying for aid. Apply early so that you can be sent an aid package as soon after admission as possible.
