New Students – March 15

The recommended filing date for the FAFSA and Public Health Student Aid Application is March 15th.

Applications for financial aid are processed on a rolling basis. However, filing by the recommended filing date enables you to receive a notification of award prior to making an enrollment commitment.  Please note that only students who have been fully accepted into an academic program can receive a financial aid award.

Returning Students – May 31

A returning student should file both the FAFSA and Public Health Student Aid Application by the recommended date.

Application Deadlines By Term

Federal regulations require that students maintain continuous eligible enrollment for the period of the award. Regulations further stipulate that aid can only be disbursed while the student is eligibly enrolled. Students applying for assistance retroactively for the current or a prior term must adhere to the deadlines below.
