Deadline to Apply for
Federal Financial Aid

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (the FAFSA) opens each fall. Fill out your FAFSA when you apply to return to the University of Arizona to find out if you qualify for federal financial aid.

The sooner the FAFSA application is submitted, the better your chances are to qualify for free grant money and federal loan eligibility.
