April 1, 2020 is the priority deadline for completing the 2020-2021 FAFSA.
Applying early ensures you are awarded your maximum financial aid eligibility, avoids processing delays, and allows plenty of time to have the FAFSA processed for timely disbursement. The 2020-2021 FAFSA uses 2018 tax information, so there is no need to wait to file your FAFSA since taxes are already filed.
As part of the FAFSA application process, your dependency status will be determined. If you are considered a dependent student, parental information is required as well. You can still submit your 2020-2021 FAFSA after the April 1, 2020 priority deadline, however, there is no guarantee that you will be awarded additional grant aid.
Awards after this date are on a first-come, first-served basis. Don't delay, file today.
