To apply, all students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.edu.gov. The priority deadline for students attending in the fall semester is February 15 and October 15 for students enrolling for the spring semester. Application is encouraged by the priority deadline to ensure maximum consideration and timely processing. Students may continue to apply after the priority deadline.
The Maryland Office of Student Financial Assistance offers grants and scholarships, some of which require the FAFSA, but not all. For program descriptions, application requirements and deadlines, visit www.mhec.state.md.us.
