January: FAFSA is available to complete for the upcoming academic year. Visit www.fafsa.gov to fill out your FAFSA.
February – April: Once your FAFSA is completed, watch the mail for your Student Aid Report (SAR). If selected for verification, send the required documents to your Financial Aid Advisor.
March: Academic Registration for fall semester.
April: Priority deadline for fall semester. There is not an unlimited amount of Federal Aid. Some aid is based on a first-come first-served basis so the sooner the FAFSA is done, the better for you!
May – July: You will be sent a Union College award letter explaining which aid is available to you. Decide what types of aid you would like and contact your Financial Advisor as soon as possible to set up a payment plan. A completed payment plan must be in place before you can register for your classes.
July: Must have all paperwork (including signed payment plan, loan paperwork, financial release, any verification paperwork, etc.) completed or preregistered classes will be dropped.
August 1: First payment due.
