Financial Aid & College Timeline

The financial aid process is often considered overwhelming. And while that may be the case, starting early and staying on top of the process of planning for college is essential to your future success.

Much of that funding is already distributed by the end of your senior year, and college-based awards are often given on a first-come, first-served basis.
