FAFSA Deadline Dates and Financial Aid


Spring 2015 Deadline: November 15, 2014            Fall 2014 Deadline: March 1, 2014

All the newest imfornation on financial aid can be found on the Financial Aid website

Failure to file the FAFSA by Eastern's deadline date could result in reduced financial aid. It is important to understand that financial aid is not an unlimited resource. There is a limited amount of monies to go around, and schools must establish criteria by which the funds are distributed. The most common criteria are "deadline dates". Simply put, the funds will go to the students who do what they need to do-when they need to do it.

There is no filing fee attached to the FAFSA. The sooner you file the sooner you are likely to hear from us regarding eligibility. We recommend that you file the FAFSA on the web by going HERE or you can file via "hard copy" obtained from the financial aid office.

One of the most common reasons we receive from families as to why they were late is that they were waiting to file their federal tax return and use actual figures. DO NOT hold up the filling of the FAFSA for any reason. You are given the option to "estimate" your figures, and update at a later date. Remember to list Eastern Connecticut State University as a recipient school to receive your information. Our school code to put on the FAFSA is 001425.

Once you have filed your FAFSA, you will receive notification from the processor and our office will also receive your information. We will follow up the requests for additional paperwork from you. Please comply with all requests in a timely fashion. Remember-the sooner you supply the information, the sooner you will receive financial aid notification.

The financial aid office is happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the financial aid process. Please contact them with the information provided below with any questions or concerns you may have and they will promptly reply to you.
