While students may apply for federal financial aid throughout the year, Delgado Community College has established financial aid processing priority dates for each enrollment period. If all financial aid documents are submitted by the processing priority date, financial aid will be packaged prior to the start of class.
1.Priority Processing - Applications of students who have submitted all requested documentation by the established deadline dates listed below will be given priority. Students will be notified before the start of the semester/session if they qualify for Federal Title IV aid.
Fall semester May 22
Spring semester October 16
Summer session March 18
2. Documents received after priority processing date - If students do not submit all the requested documents by the deadline date, financial aid may not be processed by the start of the semester. However, the Financial Aid Office will attempt to process students within 30 days of receipt of the last document submitted.
3. Late Applications - Students who apply for financial aid after the deadline date or fail to submit all documents on or before the deadline will be responsible for securing their class schedules, either by paying in full at the Bursar’s Office or by making payment arrangements online. If students register during early registration, they must make payment arrangements no later than the Thursday preceding the first day of regular registration. If students register during regular or late registration, they must pay in full or make payment arrangements before the close of business on the day they register.
