Timeline for Money Matters
Below, we have created a general timeline on big items that students should keep an eye out on at different times of the year. Bear in mind that the dates/deadlines for each award or financial aid program could change from year to year. It is your responsibility to review the specific details for anything that you wish to apply to. We will send out reminders when there are individual award deadlines coming up through our newsletters.
Unless specifically indicated, the information applies to both current and incoming students.
