      If you have not yet completed your FAFSA, and are interested in receiving federal financial aid during the 2017-2018 school year, then you must proceed to www.fafsa.ed.gov and complete a 2017-2018 application by Tuesday, May 30.

      Upon receipt of your FAFSA, the Financial Aid office can proceed with preparing your financial aid package, and send you your award letter.

      Financial Aid Delay – Fall 2017
      The Office of Financial Planning is issuing this statement to notify student loan borrowers of a delay to their financial aid disbursement in the Fall term of 2017.

      Due to a federally mandated origination fee change taking place Oct. 1, Palmer’s Office of Financial Planning is unable to originate and/or disburse aid in its usual timeframe. This impacts all institutions across the country, and is outside of Palmer’s control.

      Students should expect to receive their federal financial aid funds the second week of class, Oct. 9-13, rather than current practice of getting those funds the first day of class. Please note there will be no penalties for non-payment of institutional charges during this delay. However, it is very important that students budget appropriately to cover living expenses during this time.

      Please contact the Office of Financial Planning with any questions or concerns.

      Financial Aid Delay – Fall 2017
      The Office of Financial Planning is issuing this statement to notify student loan borrowers of a delay to their financial aid disbursement in the Fall term of 2017.

      Due to a federally mandated origination fee change taking place Oct. 1, Palmer’s Office of Financial Planning is unable to originate and/or disburse aid in its usual timeframe. This impacts all institutions across the country, and is outside of Palmer’s control.

      Students should expect to receive their federal financial aid funds the second week of class, Oct. 9-13, rather than current practice of getting those funds the first day of class. Please note there will be no penalties for non-payment of institutional charges during this delay. However, it is very important that students budget appropriately to cover living expenses during this time.

      Please contact the Office of Financial Planning with any questions or concerns.
