  • Students who met the Dec. 1, 2018 priority FAFSA date for the 2019-20 academic year will be considered for every financial aid program for which they are eligible, while funds are available. Students whose FAFSAs were submitted to the U.S. Department of Education after Dec. 1 are not automatically eligible for federal university-administered funds, such as Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant and Federal Work-Study unless there are funds remaining after students who met the deadline are awarded.
  • Complete and submit the Private (Endowed) Scholarship Application by May 1. There is a separate application for new freshman undergraduate students (priority deadline Jan. 31, 2019), transfer undergraduate students, and continuing undergraduate students.
