FEBRUARY IS FINANCIAL AID AWARENESS MONTH
Every year Financial Aid Services offers a series of events designed to help students and their parents apply for Financial Aid. Below are listed all the events you are welcome to attend. If you have any questions regarding these events, please call us at (212) 217-3560 or email email@example.com.
FINANCIAL AID FILING DEADLINES
Financial Aid application deadlines for "priority consideration":
February 15, 2014 for 2014-2015 - NEW APPLICANTS
March 1, 2014 for 2014-2015 - CURRENT STUDENTS
November 1 for SPRING 2014 Admissions
You may still be eligible for some programs even if you apply after the deadline. Priority is given to early filers for limited grants, scholarship funds, and work study. If you file late you may also be responsible for paying your charges from your own resources or need to set up a payment plan with FIT and wait for a refund once your aid is processed. The final deadline is usually the beginning of the last month of your last semester.
