College counselors or financial aid staff can provide additional information, state and federal aid publications, and financial aid application forms. Information is correct as of 6/15.
• Most programs require satisfactory progress toward degree completion to maintain eligibility (see RIT Undergraduate Bulletin). 
• Federal student aid programs are subject to government appropriations. 
• Filing the FAFSA by March 1, 2016 (March 15 for transfer applicants), will ensure priority consideration for all need-based programs. Applications filed after this date will receive consideration as long as funds remain available.
