Although students can apply for financial aid throughout the year, some financial aid programs have limited funding and are offered on a first-come first-served basis. Therefore, it is important that you submit your 2024-2025 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after it opens in December 2023 (date has not yet been announced). The filing deadline for maximum financial aid consideration is February 1, 2024. When completing the FAFSA, we recommend that you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your tax information directly from the IRS onto your FAFSA.
Check your Financial Aid To Do List on MyUI to see if there are any missing financial aid forms. When in MyUI, make sure you select the correct session in the upper right corner when viewing each page, i.e. Fall 2023, Fall 2024.
