1. Most domestic students are eligible to borrow funds for the full cost of attendance (tuition plus living expenses and fees, minus scholarships). You can apply to receive federal loans (Stafford and grad PLUS) and/or private loans (Alternative Loan Funds). Applications for federal loans are processed on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore we encourage you to submit your FAFSA by the priority deadline - May 5th.
2. The application processing timeline is available here. Please, review the information on the page carefully as it outlines important steps in understanding, accepting, and receiving your awards
3. Federal loans are sent directly from the government to the University and applied to your tuition account. Alternative Loans are generally sent to the University via an electronic disbursement method and applied to your tuition account. Scholarships provided by Harris are entered by the financial aid specialist at Harris and disbursed directly on your account. All financial aid is disbursed quarterly.
4. As you might know, the FAFSA code for the school has changed. The school code for 2017-18 is 001774. If you sent your FAFSA to a different code, please go back to your FAFSA, update the school code, sign, and resubmit.
