Renewal of Financial Aid

Financial aid awards for U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and DACA/Undocumented students are made for one academic year at a time; a new application for aid is required annually. Applications for current students are usually available online in mid-October, with a deadline of November 15.

The family contribution may change from one year to the next due to changes in parent income, assets, number of siblings in college, number of people in the household, student income, or student assets. Financial aid award notifications for returning students will be available at the beginning of June on a rolling basis. The Financial Aid Office will send reminder emails about the application process starting as early as October.

International students apply for financial aid at the time of their admission. This is an international students’ only opportunity to apply for financial aid. International students qualifying for need-based institutional aid do not need to reapply each year.
