Each college has a deadline you’ll need to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by to be sure your federal student aid money is available for you to use on the first day of classes. This ensures that your classes won’t be dropped as long as you complete other necessary requirements. The FAFSA can take several weeks to process, so it’s important you submit it as soon as possible.

After you’ve submitted your 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), there are still a few things you need to do. Some colleges even require that you fill out and submit additional paperwork once you have submitted your FAFSA. Be sure to check with the college you are attending to see if there are any additional requirements you need to complete.


Here are specific FAFSA deadlines, FAFSA follow-up directions, and contact information for financial aid offices at each college in Utah for the 2019-20 school year:

NOTE: You can still apply for financial aid if your college’s FAFSA deadline has passed. Just make sure you submit your FAFSA and complete any follow-up steps as soon as you can!

Warning: FAFSA deadlines can change. It is important that you always check directly with the college you are applying to for the most current information.

If you are applying to a technical college or an out-of-state college, be sure to check with their financial aid office for important dates and deadlines.
