Whether you are completing the FAFSA or applying for outside scholarships, be aware of deadlines.
- PA State Grant recipients are required to complete the FAFSA every year no later than May 1st.
- If you have a grant from a state other than PA, check directly with your state grant agency for their deadlines.
- Some private renewable scholarships also have annual deadlines by which their applications need to be submitted.
There are times when your family may experience special circumstances, such as loss of employment, separation, or divorce, etc., that significantly reduces family income. This may warrant a special review of the student’s financial aid package. Information on special circumstances is available on the Financial Aid Website or by contacting the Financial Aid Office.
