You must reapply with a new FAFSA every academic year.  Summer quarter is the first quarter of every new academic year at CityU.

Students are accepted into CityU programs throughout the year.  You don’t need to wait to be admitted to file your FAFSA.  Please note the following:

  • FAFSA’s completed October 1 through May 1 of the prior award year will not be reviewed until May.
  • We are unable to disburse financial aid funds to your tuition account until an award notice has been completed through the Student Service Center located on your Student Dashboard.  If loans are accepted, a Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling must also be completed through
