When is the deadline to apply for financial aid?
You can start filing the FAFSA on October 1 for the upcoming academic year. February 15th is Stevenson’s deadline to submit the FAFSA for maximum consideration for funding from all sources. The Maryland State deadline is March 1.
Your tax information for the prior-prior year will be used beginning for the 2017-2018 FAFSA. For example, if you plan to enroll in the fall 2017, you can submit your FAFSA starting October 1, 2016 using income tax information from your 2015 Federal Income Tax Return.
October 15 is the priority deadline for students applying for aid for the spring semester only.
Funds are limited so it is important to file early and maximize your chances of receiving aid. If you miss the deadline, it is not too late. Complete the FAFSA as soon as you can. You will be awarded based on available funds.
