Financial Aid

FAFSA deadlines have changed for students who will be applying for college for the 2017-2018 school year.  The application will now be available on October 1st.

The priority deadline for submitting the FAFSA to most Montana schools is now December 1st.  The University of Montana and Missoula College have a priority deadline of November 15th.

If you’re a junior or the parent/guardian of a junior and want to get a jump start on the financial aid process, you can create your FSA ID now. This ID is used for filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and you’ll use the same ID every year that you work on the FAFSA. Here is a link to a video that shows you how to create the ID.

You’ve filled out the FAFSA; what comes next?
