It’s never too early to start thinking about Financial Aid for the 2014-2015 academic year! The due date for returning undergraduates is March 1, 2014. By this date, Student Financial Services must have your  2014-2015 FAFSA (fafsa.gov) and  your 2014-2015 University Financial Aid Application (available only through your SIS account).
When you are home for the holidays, start the conversation with your parents about completing these applications as soon as possible in the New Year. The FAFSA and University Financial Aid Application both become available on January 1, 2014.
