IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT FAFSA/SAR:  We are aware of the continuing issue with the delay in receiving FAFSA reports, and assure you we will do all that we can to work with the delay. We cannot set a realistic deadline for applications due until we see movement with the FAFSA being returned. All we ask is that you upload your reports as quickly as you receive them, so we can continue the process on our end, even after the published March 15th due date. 

We have removed the Required label from the FAFSA & SAR section so that you can upload all other necessary documentation. However, we kindly request that you do not upload any screen shots or documents that are not what is requested in the FAFSA/SAR section at this time. It will cause a delay on our end, and false identify a completed application. 

Once you receive your FAFSA and SAR report, you will be able to log back into the portal and upload it using the Edit link next to the Application Form and submit again. The deadline has been extended, to March 15th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience and  understanding. 


Our scholars follow the academic path they chose at major colleges and universities. Engineering, fine arts, astrophysics, Middle Eastern studies, English, and history are recent majors.
