*Note* All financial aid documents must be received no later than July 1st for financial aid to be processed by the payment deadline for Fall 2014. Students submitting documents after this date will be expected to pay their own fees.
Students receiving loans only AND have a 30 delay will need to set up a payment plan with the Business Office.

*Note* December 3rd is the last day to complete all financial aid application, checklist items, loan forms, and to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards, in order to receive aid in time for Spring 2015 fees to be paid by class cancellation deadlines. If checklist items are not complete and Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards are not met by this date, students must plan to pay for Spring 2015 fees on their own and in accordance with fee deadlines.
