Dates and Deadlines

Beginning the Process - Dates and Deadlines

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is available beginning October 1 for the following academic year. You will want to submit your FAFSA as early as possible because early applicants are given first consideration for Campus Based Funding - Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Federal Work Study (FWS).

You must also be admitted and accepted to Lane CC as a credit student before your FAFSA can be processed.

While students may apply for financial aid throughout the academic year, the following recommended dates and deadlines have been established to ensure on-time delivery of financial aid by tuition payment due dates. Required documents submitted after the terms recommended deadline date will still be processed, however, your aid will most likely not be complete by tuition payment due dates.
