Due to the Department of Education’s delays in sharing FAFSA data with universities, the priority deadline for FAFSA submission has been changed to April 15.

If you plan to apply for need-based financial aid and have not yet submitted a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you should do so immediately. FAFSA forms received after the April 15 priority deadline will be processed on a funds available basis. Call 800.252.3166 for assistance.

If your FAFSA is selected for verification, you will be notified via your Southwestern email address. Verification documentation requirements will be indicated on that email. These documents are due by June 14, 2024.
