Winter Mini Financial Aid

Students taking courses in the Winter Mini Session are not eligible for financial aid for that term.  To assist students in paying for that session, students may complete the Winter Mini Financial Aid Application and if eligible, the winter charges may be deferred to the spring semester. The student must be attending the spring semester and must have sufficient financial aid from the spring semester to cover the additional winter mini costs as well as the spring costs. 

2017 Winter Mini Financial Aid Application

It's time to file your 2017-2018 FAFSA application!!

2017-2018 FAFSA Changes

Students can now file their 2017-18 FAFSA three months earlier starting October 1, 2016.  When completing the application students and parents will use their 2015 income tax which is the same income that was used for the 2016-2017 FAFSA.  This change allows students to file the FAFSA earlier and have the financial aid processed well before the student receives a bill.  Both student and parent (if applicable) will use an FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA application.  The FSA ID can be created on the FAFSA website.
