Parents & Families

If your student needs financial aid, they should start the process each year by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. They can apply starting Oct. 1 for the upcoming academic year. There is no cut-off date, but many programs have a priority date of March 1, and some funds are limited, so encourage your student to apply early. Most students do qualify for some type of financial aid.
