Financial Aid Awards

A number of factors go into the timing of the financial aid awarding process, such as UDSL processes, our SAP review (returning students) and having FAFSA results on file. With that in mind, the Office of Financial Aid tries to adhere to the following award notification schedule:

  • Incoming summer students: mid-March
  • Incoming fall students: mid-April
  • Returning students: mid-June

All students will receive an e-mail notification to guide you through the steps to view and accept your awards online.

If we receive your FAFSA results after we begin awarding, you can generally expect to receive your financial aid award within 7-10 business days.
