How long does it take to receive an Award Letter?

Once you complete the FAFSA, the Financial Aid Office reviews your application to determine if additional documents are necessary. If more information is required, we must wait until you respond to this request before we can continue working on your file. Once your file is complete, depending on the time of year, it may take several weeks before you will receive an Award Letter. Although you can submit your FAFSA as early as October preceding the next fall semester, the Financial Aid Office will begin reviewing applications in March. It is not unusual for the entire process to take 12-16 weeks.
