Priority dates are critical when applying for financial aid. Apply as early as possible.
May 1 is the annual priority processing date established by Sinclair. Apply by May 1 each year for the best chance of receiving a financial aid award for the next academic year.
After priority dates, there may be less aid available from state aid and scholarships. You may still submit an application, but you may be required to pay tuition and book fees yourself before receiving a reimbursement credit. See a financial aid representative for possible reimbursement for current or past quarters of federal Pell grants.
If you are having difficulty paying all of your tuition and fees by the due date, you should see the Bursar about the FACTS payment plan. This plan allows you to spread tuition over two or three payments. You can also visit www.facts.sinclair.edu to apply online.
