*Please note that although the 2024-25 Federal Application For Student Aid (FAFSA) became available on 12/31/2023, there are lengthy federal system outages and delays. The Financial Aid Office will not receive any student FAFSA data until the mid-March. We encourage students to file the FAFSA as soon as they are able, but we understand that some students are unable to do so because of a variety of factors.
Reminder: New students and parents will need to create an FSA ID before they can access the FAFSA. The site to create the FSA ID is also experiencing outages and lengthy delays. After the FSA ID is created, it may take up to three days before it can be used.

URI will remain test-optional for the 2024-2025 admission cycle.
