Get Started

There is no single deadline to apply for the Stafford loan each school year. Each school typically sets their own deadline for applying for financial aid, including Stafford loans, for an upcoming semester.

In order to receive financial aid in a timely manner, it's best to submit your FAFSA well before June 30th for the Fall semester.

For more information about financial aid deadlines, you should contact the financial aid office at your school.
