FAFSA Deadlines - Financial Aid Due Dates
Is there a FAFSA deadline or due date for my financial aid application?
Yes, there are federal FAFSA deadlines as well as financial aid application due dates for your state or college.
Though you may use your FAFSA to apply for aid from your state or college, the deadline for state or college aid can differ from the federal deadline. As a result, you may need to complete additional forms.
Always check with a financial aid administrator at your college or with your high school guidance counselor about deadlines for state and college student aid.
