2016-2017 Financial Aid Release Dates: Projected

Based on current laws and regulations overseeing the federal and state financial aid programs, the earliest federal and state financial aid can be credited to university student accounts is 10 days prior to the first day of classes for the semester.  Release of Financial Aid to Student Accounts begins at 5:00 p.m. on release days. 

Below are the dates when we will start to release financial aid for those students meeting all financial aid requirements in the semester. These dates are scheduled to change should federal and/or state laws and regulations change.

Specific online programs have different release dates due to the length of the terms.
