Timeline and Deadlines

The chart below shows a timeline for both admission to the college and applying for financial aid.

Be sure to file the FAFSA by March 1 to be considered for need-based grants, loans, and work opportunities.

Returning students: If you file the FAFSA after March 1, you will be subject to a reduction in your St. John's grant as follows: $3,000 through March 30, $3,500 during April, $4,000 during May, and $5,000 during June and after.

If your family has not completed your 2014 Federal Income Tax Return or are filing an extension, use estimated income figures to complete the forms and submit a copy of the tax extension. Do not miss the filing deadline just because your taxes are not done.
