Financial Aid Calendar

While students may apply for federal financial aid throughout the award year, UCC has established the following financial aid processing priority deadlines for each term. Students must have all of their financial aid requirements submitted to the UCC Financial Aid Office before 5pm on the priority term deadline in order to ensure processing and on-time delivery of financial aid by tuition due dates. Priority deadlines are set in order to give the Financial Aid Office the necessary time to review and process your aid accurately. Requirements submitted after the terms priority deadline will still be accepted; however, your aid will most likely not be completed by tuition due date.

FAFSA Deadline

Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by clicking the link as early as possible but no earlier than October 1 prior to the academic year you are applying for.

UCC's award year begins with summer term and ends with the following spring term. Students who apply before 30 days of their enrollment period are more likely to receive financial aid. 

Campus-Based Funding is Limited

The dates you apply and submit all outstanding requirements CAN affect the amount of your financial aid award. Be sure to hit those dates!
