2024-25 Award Status

The release of the 2024-2025 FAFSA was delayed by the U.S. Department of Education. Instead of the usual October 1 release date, it was released at the end of December 2023 due to a wide range of changes being implemented.

If you have not submitted a 2024-2025 FAFSA, please submit it now. To begin application: 2024-2025 FAFSA
