File Your FAFSA
File your taxes as soon as possible or by the April 15 deadline to ensure you're ready to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The priority deadline for returning students is April 15, but you can increase your chances of receiving a variety of financial aid awards by completing your FAFSA early.
Estimated Financial Awards
If you are an incoming first-year student for fall 2015, One Stop will begin sending out estimated financial aid award notices to your home mailing address starting at the end of February. Please contact One Stop with any questions.
Your Fall Registration Time
Fall 2015 registration for students admitted to degree programs begins on Monday, March 23. You can view your registration time online. Regularly check for any holds that could prevent you from registering on time. Non-degree and visiting students may register on or after Friday, May 1.
Deadlines for Canceling
Thinking about canceling a course? Be sure you know the consequences. Talk to your Student Success Coach and a One Stop counselor, and review One Stop's list of cancel/add and refund deadlines before you do.
Institutional and Perkins Loans Deadlines
If you are in the process of requesting an Institutional Loan (e.g. University Trust Fund Loan) or a Federal Perkins Loan, make sure to have all required documents completed prior to Friday, March 27. The University is performing an upgrade to its systems and in preparation, all Institutional and Perkins loans with incomplete documents at the end of business day on March 27 will be cancelled. If you miss the deadline, you will need to wait until after May 12 to re-request the loan, which will cause significant delays in receiving your loan funds.
