WHEN TO APPLY
Applying for financial aid and scholarships is not meant to be confusing; however, because federal, state and college policies demand that you do a lot of paper work, you may feel trapped by "the system". Don’t let it get you down - go after your fair share of the funds. It is imperative that students apply for financial aid as soon as possible after January 1 for the following academic year. Applicants should apply on line at www.fafsa.gov. If you need a paper application, please call 1-800-433-3243 or come by our office. The priority deadline for submitting applications is May 1; however, applications are accepted until funds are exhausted.
Submitting the necessary applications, records and forms is your responsibility; however, we are available to assist you and will do our best to see that you complete the process as accurately and timely as possible.
The Office of Financial Aid will not award an eligible student who has completed the application process until he/she is cleared for admission to the college and placed on the admissions screen of the computer.
