It's not too late to complete the FAFSA!
While the priority deadline of March 1st has passed, you can still submit the FAFSA. To get started, visit www.fafsa.gov. The federal government has made some significant changes that make filing the FAFSA simple. You will have the option to import answers to many FAFSA questions directly from data that you submitted to the IRS. This IRS Data Retrieval is also critically important for students who are selected for verification. If you’re selected for verification and you filed your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval, you’ll find the process far simpler and faster than ever before. So it is to your advantage to file your taxes first and then file your FAFSA.

Financial Aid Availability
We understand how difficult paying for college can be, and we want to be a resource to help you understand your options. We are happy to discuss borrowing and the types of loans that are available, as well as direct you to outside scholarship resources you may wish to pursue. While the weeks prior to the start of the semester are our busiest time, we invite you to contact your financial aid counselor if you have questions. We appreciate your patience as we work to help the record number of you who are seeking financial assistance.
