Priority Processing Information

A completed application consists of a valid FAFSA with any additional documents received and reviewed. If your financial aid file is completed in a timely manner, every attempt will be made to process your application in time to cover your tuition and fees; however, you should be prepared to pay your college expenses by the date printed on your class schedule.  To receive any type of financial aid, including loans, you must be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress.

If you are experiencing difficulty or have any questions, please visit your nearest Financial Aid Office. We are here to assist you with this process and we will be able to provide you the most accurate information.

We can also assist with the completion of your FAFSA Application. Please visit our FAFSA Workshop page for dates and times.

Reasonable Financial Aid Timeline

All completed applications will be processed; however, students should consider applying for financial aid early to avoid any delay.

To be considered for financial aid, submit or renew the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available starting on October 1st. Completing the FAFSA is one of many steps toward qualifying for financial aid. Students whose application has been selected for verification must work with the Office of Financial Aid to resolve any missing documents.

Financial aid is awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis, while funds are available. Therefore, students must consider any possible factor that may cause a delay. An application submission date is not the same as an application completion date. A completed application means the student first submits the FAFSA, then ensures that all the steps in the application process are done.

Students can expect a completed application to be packaged within two weeks during the non-peak registration period. During peak registration (July and August), the average wait time may be 3 to 4 weeks.

Please be advised that the amount of time it takes for financial aid to be packaged may vary. Students may apply for financial aid throughout the school year, and should not solely base their decision to apply on a priority processing date.
