Financial Aid Forms 2017-2018

Please note that the 2017-2018 financial aid year will be FOUR (4) quarters with Summer 2018 being a "Trailer" quarter at the end of the year. That means for Summer 2018 aid, we will be using the 2017-2018 FAFSA. The quarters for the 2017-2018 year will be:

  • Fall 2017
  • Winter 2018
  • Spring 2018
  • Summer 2018

What this means for you: PLAN ACCORDINGLY. Students who receive Pell Grant at the full-time level each quarter will only receive 3 quarters of Pell Grant. If you take a lighter load during some quarters, your aid will be adjusted those quarters and you can use any remaining Pell Grant in Summer 2017. Student loans have an annual limit as well, so keep the 4-quarter year in mind when filling out your loan requests. Remember that there are also lifetime limits for grants and loans.

Free Application For Student Aid (FAFSA)

With the exception of some scholarships, all financial aid awarding uses information found on the FAFSA. To receive grants, work-study, and loans, you will need to start with the FAFSA.
