Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

Each of the institutions of the Graduate Theological Union has its own priority deadline for financial aid. The priority deadline is the deadline by which students must apply in order to receive priority consideration for forms of aid that are limited in nature, such as institutional aid and federal work-study. GTU Common M.A. students use the priority deadline listed for their school of affiliation. Students at JST and SFTS should contact their schools directly for institutional grant/scholarship application deadlines and forms.

Financial Aid Programs and Eligibility

The Consortial Financial Aid Office administers financial aid on behalf of CARe, CDS, CIS, CJS, CTNS, IBS, JST, PAOI, and SFTS. While the financial aid application process is similar for all students, each institution has its own deadlines, financial aid programs, and eligibity requirements. This page describes the types of financial aid administered by the Consortial Financial Aid Office and the eligibility requirements for each program, including Institutional Aid, Federal Direct Loans, Federal Work-Study and Federal Perkins loans.

Voter Registration

Schools in most states and the District of Columbia must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to their students. This voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. In essence, if a Title IV (Federal Student Aid) participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to its federal student aid eligible students.
