Financial Aid

Application deadlines

2016-17 Academic Year

Priority Filing Date: March 1, 2016

Students who wish to be considered for financial aid for the 2016-2017 academic year should file as close as possible to the March 1, 2016 priority filing date. 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

In order to award federal 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 2016 students - October 17, 2016

For Fall/Spring 2016-17 or Spring-only 2017 students - March 13, 2017

For Summer-only 2017 students - June 5, 2017

PLEASE NOTE: Furnishing required documents by these deadline dates does not guarantee awarding of Rivier need-based funding (Rivier Grant) for day students. As this is a limited pool of funding, students are strongly encouraged to provide the necessary documents well before these deadlines. If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 603-897-8510 or at
