Save the date! April 2 is our annual deadline to re-apply for financial aid.

Students must re-apply for financial aid by our deadlines in order to be considered on time. Students who apply late risk not receiving institutional financial aid. The financial aid deadlines for the 2023-2024 academic year have passed. If you require financial assistance for 2023-2024, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.
