Are You a Summer Start?

If you will be starting classes for the first time in the 2016 summer term, you do not need to complete the online summer aid application; instead, you will need to complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA (and CSS PROFILE if you are an undergraduate student). Once submitted, you will receive an award letter within 2-3 weeks.
