The FAFSA application is available each January 1. The application and awarding process will take time to process. Therefore, the following priority dates are highly recommended.
| Program Start Date||Submit FAFSA By|
| August||April 1st|
|January||September 1st |
| June|| February 1st|
However, a student can apply after these dates. If the FAFSA is submitted after these dates, there is no guarantee the awarding process will be completed prior to the tuition due date or the student program start date.
A student's financial aid file must be completed before an award will processed. If the financial aid file has not been completed by the last date of attendance, the student will be ineligible to receive any type of financial aid.
The student is responsible to pay tuition fees on the tuition due date if financial aid has not been awarded.
