A: You may use estimated income tax information (using your W2's) to complete the FAFSA. You may be required to submit actual tax documents later. Q: How long after I complete by FAFSA before I am notified of the award?
A: We will begin notifying you of your financial aid awards in mid March. Q: Will transfer credits count toward the 30 cumulative hour requirement?
