PLEASE NOTE: We cannot guarantee financial aid will be processed before the term begins. It can take 2-3 weeks or longer for financial aid to process. If a late registration is completed within a few weeks of the start of the term, students should be prepared to pay out-of-pocket the first term, while financial aid can be processed.
