Institutional funding is limited. Complete your FAFSA by the Priority Filing Date to be considered:

  • Admitted Fall 2024: April 1, 2024
  • Admitted Spring 2025: November 1, 2024

When completing your FAFSA, be sure to include Arizona's school code (001083) to avoid delays in the processing of your aid. Remember, you need to complete a FAFSA each year!
