Paperwork Deadlines

Paperwork Deadlines:

   FOR FALL AWARDS:

   June 30th

   FOR SPRING AWARDS:

   November 30th

   FOR SUMMER AWARDS:

   April 30th

Meet the Deadline:
Meeting the deadline dates means ALL of the requested forms and paperwork have been received by the Office of Student Services including an electronic copy of your Student Aid Report and full admission to Mountwest Community and Technical College. This does not mean that you file the FAFSA by the deadline date but, rather that you file the FAFSA so the Student Aid Report is received in our office, along with all requested forms and paperwork, by the deadline date. Students who do not meet the deadline dates must pay for all expenses (tuition, fees, books, room and board) from their own resources.

To ensure that you meet the deadline date you should file the FAFSA at least one month prior to the deadline date, and you should check with the Office of Student Services to make certain that you are fully admitted. No funds will be disbursed to you unless your financial aid file is complete. We are unable to offer you an award until you are fully admitted to Mountwest Community and Technical College.

Missing the above deadlines, with the exception of summer, does not prevent you from receiving financial assistance; however, it may delay the receipt of assistance. Students failing to meet the above deadlines MUST be prepared to cover college expenses from their own resources, use the AMS Tuition Pay Plan, or contact the Business Office to make arrangements to use the 60/40 tuition payment plan.

Deadlines for Loan Promissory Notes and New Loan Requests:

   FALL SEMESTER:

   November 1st

   SPRING SEMESTER:

   April 1st

   SUMMER SEMESTER:

   June 10th

Please NOTE: Promissory notes submitted after the above dates may not be processed in time for the funds to be released by the end of the semester. No loan money can be released after the end of the semester.

If you miss the deadlines you can still apply for federal financial aid, but you must be enrolled at the time funds are disbursed, and you must be making academic progress. You should be prepared to cover your expenses from your own resources if you apply late.
