Announcements

2017-18 Award Information for Current Students

Financial Aid decision notifications for the 2017-18 academic year will be released via email on a rolling basis beginning late June for students who completed and submitted all of the required financial aid application materials by the May 1 deadline. Review the Current Student Renewal page for more information. Students should check their CAESAR to-do list to ensure all application materials have been received.

FAFSA Data Retrieval Tool (DRT)

On March 30, the U.S. Department of Education announced that the Data Retrieval Tool on fafsa.gov will be unavailable until measures can be taken to enhance data security. The online FAFSA application is still available and is operable. Applicants will need to enter tax information manually using their 2015 tax information.

The Summer Financial Aid Application is now available. See our Summer Session page for details.
