Recommended Financial Aid Filing Dates
Here is some information on recommended filing dates for financial aid applications.
If you have questions about these dates, contact the Financial Aid Office.
New Students – March 15
The recommended filing date for the FAFSA and Public Health Federal Student Aid Application is March 15.
Applications for financial aid are processed on a rolling basis. However, the availability of Federal Perkins Loans and Federal Work-Study funding is limited so applicants should file on time. Filing by the recommended filing date also enables a prospective student to receive a notification of eligibility for federal aid prior to making a commitment regarding enrollment. Please note we cannot package students for financial aid until they are fully accepted into their academic program.
Returning Students – May 1
A returning student should file both the FAFSA and Public Health Federal Student Aid Application by the recommended date in order to receive a maximum award. The recommended filing date for returning or continuing students is May 1.
