Priority Filing Date: March 1, 2013
Students who wish to be considered for financial aid for the 2012-2013 academic year should file as close to the priority filing date of March 1, 2013 as possible. As a result of limited student financial aid resources, Rivier must establish priority deadlines for financial aid applications. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the FAFSA is filed by the priority deadline. On-time financial aid applicants are given full consideration for assistance. Availability of funds cannot be guaranteed for late applicants; therefore, late applicants will be considered on a funds-available basis. Students may file their FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov .
In order to award federal and/or additional institutional funding for a student, the Office of Financial Aid must have a valid student aid report (results from the FAFSA). The deadlines for filing a FAFSA and provide any additional documentation/information that the Office requests are as follows:
For Fall-only students - October 18, 2013
For Fall/Spring students - March 14, 2014
For Summer-only students - June 6, 2014
