Do I need to be admitted before I can apply for financial aid?
No. You can apply for financial aid any time after Oct. 1, prior to the academic year you plan to attend. To actually receive funds, however, you must be admitted and enrolled at the university. FAFSA forms for the 2024-25 academic year are expected to be available sometime in December. Visit the Federal Student Aid website for updates and to access FAFSA forms once they're available.
