Dates and Deadlines
The financial aid process can take up to eight weeks. Plan ahead and complete your FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1. Successful students apply between January and April and follow up with Reynolds to ensure everything is completed by May.
For priority, be sure the Federal Processor receives your FAFSA by:
April 15 for fall sememster
September 15 for spring semester
March 15 for summer semester
Applications received after this date will be processed in date order after all priority applications have been reviewed. This means you may have to pay for tuition and books from personal funds while awaiting a reply for the Office of Financial Aid regarding your eligibility for financial aid.
Summer Financial Aid
For Summer aid, Reynolds uses the same FAFSA data you completed for the fall and/or spring semesters and Reynolds requires an additional summer application, available online, or at any campus Student Success Center after March 1. The deadline for the Reynolds summer financial aid application is May 1.
