View Expanded Mission Statement
EARLY FAFSA - BEGINNING OCT. 1
NEW! You can apply for the FAFSA starting Oct. 1 for the 2017-18 academic year. Most students qualify for some type of financial aid, so be sure to get your FAFSA in early at FAFSA.ed.gov.
This change will allow students to report tax information from two years ago (i.e. if you apply for the 2017-18 FAFSA, you can use 2015 tax information). For ease of use, students will be able to electronically transfer their tax information directly into their FAFSA by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). More information on early FAFSA.
Student refunds have disbursed. Please note: if students have an e-refund account set-up and no other holds on the account, funds may be available around Sept. 1. Students with no e-refund account will have checks cut and mailed on Sept. 2, students should receive sometime the following week.
