Understanding Financial Aid
Attention students applying for admission for fall 2017: You may file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) beginning October 1, 2016. You will be required to use income data from 2015. Learn more about these important FAFSA changes.
Our admission application deadlines will remain the same (12/1 for Early Action and 2/1 for regular admission). We will begin to notify Early Action applicants of their decisions in mid-January, with rolling admission decisions after that (through end of March). Merit scholarship notification will be included in the acceptance package, and financial aid awards will be sent in early to mid-March.
