You were not considered for federal, state, and most forms of institutional financial aid if you did not file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To request consideration for aid for the current year, see How to Apply for more information. If you have not filed the 2014-2015 FAFSA, you can still complete and submit this form as soon as possible, but no later than June 30, 2015, in order to be considered for federal financial aid beginning summer term, 2014. When you apply after your priority deadline, funds from certain programs, including scholarships, Federal SEOG, Federal Perkins Loan, and Federal Work-Study, will be awarded only on a funds-available basis. The priority application date is February 15.
