Your first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once our Financial Aid office receives your FAFSA data—which generally is not available to the School until after February 15th—we can begin the evaluation process for determining your financial aid award package. If you are applying for admission by December 1, 2016, you can expect to receive your financial aid package by early-to-mid March 2017. Financial aid awards typically include a mix of institutional scholarships, Federal Work Study, federal loans, and other types of loans.
