Deadline for Appeals: Files turned in by the 1st day of the quarter are reviewed with priority status. All appeals are reviewed in the order that we receive them.

  • If you need financial support for a particular academic term, you must submit your Appeal at least one week before the quarter ends.  Appeals submitted after this date will not apply for quarters that have ended.
