Financial Aid Calendar

Federal Government & State Aid
In order to determine federal and state eligibility, a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be completed and submitted by April 30th. This may be done online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
1) Institutional Scholarship
To be considered for an institutional scholarship, you must complete a graduate scholarship application at least four months before you plan to start classes.
2) Pell Grants
Students in the 3 + 2 program may be eligible for full Pell Grants for the first four years in the program. However, they will not be eligible for full Pell Grants for their final year, since they will not be full-time undergraduate students. To be eligible for a Pell Grant, students must complete the FAFSA.
