Deadlines and Required Applications

Important Deadlines

When applying for financial aid, you want to ensure that your son or daughter meets the established deadlines that are set forth by both the University and PHEAA.

  • April 1 is Pitt-Johnstown's priority filing deadline. In order for your son or daughter to be considered for all types of financial aid, especially the Perkins Loan, FSEOG, and Federal Work Study, the Federal Processor must receive your FAFSA by April 1. If you do not have your federal tax returns completed, you may use estimated income on the FAFSA to meet the April 1 deadline; however, once you complete your tax return, you must update the income information reported on the FAFSA to reflect the income information reported on your federal income tax return.
  • May 1 is PHEAA's filing deadline. In order for your son or daughter to be considered for the PHEAA Grant, the Federal Processor must receive your FAFSA by May 1.

Required Applications

  • FAFSA- To be considered for any type of financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA can be completed any time after January 1. In fact, we encourage students to apply as early as possible to avoid missing Pitt-Johnstown’s April 1 priority filing deadline.
    This application is available in the Guidance Office at most high schools, the Financial Aid Office at any college, or by calling the Federal Student Information Center at 800-433-3243. You may also complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. If you decide to complete your FAFSA online, you must request a PIN number in order to electronically sign your application. You can request a PIN number at www.pin.ed.gov.

  • Pitt-Johnstown's Financial Aid Acceptance Form-In addition to the FAFSA, Pitt-Johnstown requires that students complete the Financial Aid Acceptance Form, which collects information that is not reported on the FAFSA.
