1. FAFSA applications are due Feb. 15

Marquette students must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year to be considered for assistance. The Office of Student Financial Aid recommends having the FAFSA filed and submitted no later than Saturday, Feb. 15, so it is processed and sent to Marquette by the March 1 Priority Deadline.

The student and one parent will need their own federal PIN numbers to electronically sign the FAFSA, which is completed and submitted online. Students can apply for a federal PIN or request a duplicate PIN online.

If the FAFSA is received by Marquette after the March 1 Priority Deadline, financial aid could be reduced or eliminated due to limited funding. Any required documents must also be submitted to Marquette Central within 30 days of the student's initial request for missing documents. Missing documents are listed in students' "To Do Lists" in CheckMarq. Questions can be directed to Marquette Central at (414) 288-4000.
