  • You can now upload documents to our secure server here:    Document Upload  Please use the secure upload for all document submissions.



Please remember, the On-Time Financial Aid application priority filing date is now February 15, 2024.  In order to be considered “on time” for Institutional Aid purposes; you must submit BOTH a completed 2024-2025 FAFSA and a completed and signed Institutional Aid application with parent information and signature by the deadline. If you have already submitted the required documents, you can disregard this message.





When will I know if UConn received my FAFSA?  The Department of Education has just announced that they will NOT be sending application information to schools until sometime in the first half of March. That means that we will NOT be able to confirm that it was received. However, once you submit it, the date of submission to the Dept. of Ed is the filing date.  We will not be able to start file review until after this information is received by the Department of Education.


What’s the bottom line? If you wish to be considered for Institutional Aid for the 2024/2025 academic year; you must complete The 2024/2025 FAFSA and submit a completed and signed 2024-2025 Institutional Aid Application   with parent financial and household information by the priority filing deadline of February 15, 2024.  You will also need to submit all your, your spouse (if applicable) and your parent(s) signed 2022 federal tax information (including all applicable schedules) and 2022 W-2’s.  If you only wish to be considered for Federal Direct Unsubsidized and/or Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Student Loans; then you only need to complete the 2024/2025 FAFSA.

Please note: The Office of Student Financial Aid Services will NOT be able to confirm all your documents are submitted. The only information we can confirm is if we have the completed institutional aid application. Once we begin file review sometime in March, we will contact you directly if we need anything additional.
