Deadlines Dates for Financial Aid

Priority Financial Aid Deadline for Incoming Undergraduate Day Students: February 15th

Priority Financial Aid Deadline for Returning, Evening or Graduate Students: April 15th

The purpose of our deadlines is to assure that your financial aid is credited to your account by the start of the fall term. However, filing late or submitting requested documentation after the deadline may cause a reduction in your financial aid award or a delay in having your aid credited to your account.


If your financial aid is not in place to pay your bill for the beginning of the term for any reason, then you must be prepared to utilize the Actively Managed Payment Plan offered through our Office of Student and Accounts Receivable, which can be reached at 215-951-1055. If you do not make the necessary payment arrangements, you will incur late fees and financial holds. No financial aid can be processed once you cease to be enrolled.


Also, if you miss the deadlines and your financial aid is not in place, you may experience a delay in receiving a refund check for living expenses or a transfer of funds to your gold card to buy books. 

You can reach the Office of Financial Aid at 215-951-1070 or use the La Salle portal to view your aid information.
