Financial aid priority deadlines
Eastern Florida State College wants to help ensure your aid package is not impacted by missed deadlines. Students must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with any additional documents requested by EFSC’s Office of Financial Aid to complete the verification process or confirm eligibility by the dates listed below to ensure a determination of eligibility prior to the Fee Due Date.
Spring Terms 2017 – December 1, 2016
Summer Terms 2017 – April 20, 2017
June 30, 2017 is the last day to submit 2016-17 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Fall Terms 2017 - July 13, 2017
Spring Terms 2018 - December 7, 2017
Summer Terms 2018 - April 19, 2018
June 30, 2018 is the last day to submit 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Students may still apply for aid after the deadlines and the EFSC Office of Financial Aid will make every effort to process documents submitted after the deadlines as quickly as possible. However, the Office of Financial Aid cannot guarantee that students who submit documents late will be notified of eligibility prior to the Fee Due Date. Students who miss the published deadlines should be prepared to pay in full or enroll in the tuition payment plan.
Scholarships are a separate form of student aid with a very different deadline structure, especially outside agency or state scholarships which all have differing deadlines. Please visit our scholarship web section for that information.

Tips for a Timely Determination of Financial Aid Eligibility
• Use of the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is strongly recommended.
• Check your Titan e-mail account frequently. It is the Office of Financial Aid’s official means of communication.
• Submit required documents as soon as possible. Use of the Student Document Dropbox within the myEFSC Portal is the fastest and most secure method of submitting documents. Exception: the V4 and V5 Verification Worksheets must be dropped off in person or mailed.
• In addition to completing the FAFSA, students who want to borrow a Federal Direct Loan must accept the loan via Titan Web once the loan is offered. First-time borrowers must also sign an electronic Master Promissory Note (MPN) and complete Entrance Counseling online.
