Regular Decision FAQ
What forms are Regular Decision students required to file to apply for financial aid and what are the deadlines?
When do I receive information on financial aid?
Financial aid decisions for those who have submitted complete applications by the established deadlines are usually released by the middle of April (or slightly earlier if we can get everything done more quickly).
How important are the deadlines?
It can take more than a month for information to reach us from your FAFSA and/or your Profile applications and/or IDOC. It is important that you submit materials according to the deadlines.
Your aid cannot be guaranteed if your paperwork has not been submitted on time.
Should I wait until my family's tax returns are filed to fill out the FAFSA and the Profile applications?
Submit the FAFSA and the Profile to the Federal Government and the College Board by February 1 whether or not you family's tax returns are completed. Even the Federal Government allows you to file the FAFSA before the tax returns are filed by allowing you to indicate that the information you are providing is estimated.
