Changes to timelines for 2024

Why are financial aid awards delayed this year?

The financial aid packaging timeline has been impacted by delays in delivering financial aid information to collegesby the U.S. Department of Educationdue to necessary updates to the federal processing system. These updates are crucial to ensure that students receive the most accurate and up-to-date financial aid awards possible.

What does this mean for you?

This delay affected all institutions waiting for FAFSA data. TheU.S. Department of Educationis now delivering information to schools and processing new FAFSA forms as they receive them.

  • We encourage you to submit your 2024-2025 FAFSA as soon as possibleif you have not already done so. This will ensure your information is processed quickly once 鶹ƵAPK has received your data.
  • If you have completed your 2024-2025 FAFSA and it hasbeen accepted by thefederal government, you do not need to do anything further at this time. The 鶹ƵAPK Financial Aid Office is packaging offers as quickly as possible.
  • If you have been notified that you must make a correction to your FAFSA or if you need to add 鶹ƵAPK as a receiving school for your data, student-initiated corrections are now available. Students can make corrections on and the entire process should only take a few minutes for most applicants.

What is financial aid?

Through a combination of undergraduate financial aid opportunities, we make it possible for many first-year and transfer students from diverse backgrounds to get the education they need to succeed in their chosen fields.

Financial aid packages are made up of several components:

  • 鶹ƵAPK scholarships and grants
  • Outside scholarships and grants
  • Federal scholarships and grants
  • Student employment (Work-study)
  • State scholarships and grants
  • Loans

Scholarships and grants are forms of financial aid that you do not have to pay back. A variety of loans are available specifically for higher education costs. If you qualify, you can work on campus.
