FAFSA Deadline for New Students

Happy first day of March!

The first of this month greets us with temperatures in the high 50s and the priority deadline for submitting the FAFSA. For those of you who have yet to complete this form, it is in your best interest to do it asap. In doing so, you will be considered for Stafford loans, Plus loans, Perkins loans, work study and any other federal funding available for graduate students with financial need (which is pretty much everyone). Keep in mind that, as a graduate student, you are considered independent so your parents financial situation is not taken into consideration. I believe this is the ONLY time when it’s great to have a $0 Estimated Family Contribution (EFC).

I’m sure you all are anxiously awaiting your admissions decision from the Josef Korbel School. If you completed your application by (or within 2-3 weeks from) the January 15th priority, you will be hearing from our office within a week. We will email decisions to the email address you provided on your application. If this address has changed, please contact our office so we can send it to the appropriate address. You can reach us at 303.871.2544 or via email: korbeladm@du.edu.

Good luck and be in touch if you have any questions.
