Although students can apply for financial aid throughout the year, some financial aid programs have limited funding and are awarded on a first-come first-served basis.  Therefore, it is important that you submit your 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1, 2019The filing deadline for priority consideration was December 1, 2019. When completing the FAFSA, the UI OSFA recommends that you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your tax information directly from the IRS onto your FAFSA.
