2018 Financial Aid Deadlines

College Transitions recommends submitting your FAFSA and/or CSS profile early in the financial aid window. However, we understand that not everyone is able to be an “early bird” who finishes all of the requisite paperwork in October. For your convenience, we have put together a sortable spreadsheet featuring all financial aid deadlines at 361 of the top schools in the country. In this table, we included separate financial aid deadlines for early action, early decision, and early decision II applicants. This data was all collected from institutional websites in August 2017.
