Current Domestic Students

The priority deadline for returning students to apply for financial aid is March 1, 2024. Students must submit the 24-25 FAFSA and 24-25 CSS Profile to apply for aid. 

Students should submit the 24-25 FAFSA once it becomes available in December. The 24-25 CSS Profile is available to submit now. Both applications are due by March 1, 2024.

What Can I Do Now To Prepare?

Do not wait until the launch of the 2024-25 FAFSA in December. Students and parent(s) should create their StudentAid.gov accounts now if they do not already exist.
