Financial Aid application deadlines for "priority consideration":

March 1st for CURRENT STUDENTS
November 1 for SPRING 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.
