FAFSA Submission Requirements

Students who wish to be considered for financial need awards or merit awards that recognize financial need concurrently must submit a FAFSA.

The bulk of the College of Nursing awards are a combination of merit/financial need awards. Students must show a baseline level of need to be considered on merit. The FAFSA is not the sole determining factor for need awards. The College of Nursing Scholarship application provides an additional section to provide financial need information that may not be considered by FAFSA.

Prospective and current students should submit a FAFSA application by March 1.

Find more information about FAFSA from the University of Utah Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.

Review Process

The review process will occur between February 12 and the first week of April. We anticipate notification letters will go out during the second week of May.

Please note, applicants to our programs will be submitting a funding application without knowing their admission status. Only students who are admitted will have their application file reviewed. Basing our scholarship deadline on admission notification dates would push back funding notifications to mid-summer.
