Financial Aid

Financial support to help you finish your degree

The Department of Education has announced a new timeline for the processing of the 2024-25 FAFSAs.  Currently, they are making further improvements to the Student Aid Index (SAI) calculation from the FAFSA, to ensure students get all the federal student aid they are eligible to receive.

Typically, schools receive FAFSAs in January, however, the timeline has now been adjusted to sending the information to schools by mid-March.

The Department of Education will send students an email when they have completed processing their 2024-25 FAFSA and have sent their FAFSA information to schools.

Once we receive the 2024-25 FAFSA information, we will notify students via email that their FAFSA has been received.  We anticipate sending out offers by the end of May and will update this page as we have more information.


We are here to assist you in securing a quality education without missing an opportunity because of any financial situation. We work to provide you with the best scholarship, grant, student employment, and loan options available. We encourage you to begin this process as early as possible to ensure that you receive maximum consideration for the aid for which you may qualify.
