Timeline for Money Matters
Below, we have created a general timeline on big items that students should keep an eye 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. Students Services will send out individual award deadline reminders through our newsletters.
Unless specifically indicated, the information applies to both current and incoming students.
For tuition fee payment deadlines, please refer to the Tuition & Fees information page.
