Financial Aid

In order to be eligible for federal financial aid, students must complete a FAFSA – the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students are encouraged to seek support from high school counselors to successfully complete this form. Students should also refer to two Connecticut resources, the FAFSA Family Guide and the Virtual FAFSA Completion Sessions.

The deadline for completion of the FAFSA is June 30, 2023, but students are strongly encouraged to complete the form by the Connecticut priority deadline, February 15, 2023. Colleges and universities will use the information from this form to help determine the amounts and kinds of financial aid to award. Total aid may include grants and/or loans.

Students may also be eligible to receive non-federal forms of aid, such as merit awards, depending on student profile based on information in the application and the availability of such aid at the individual schools.
