Important Financial Aid Dates and Deadlines

Blinn College Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

The FAFSA is set to open by December 31, 2023 according to the Department of Education.

Excluding the 2024-2025 FAFSA, the FAFSA generally opens October 1 of each year. Blinn College uses the FAFSA for the Fall/Spring/Summer semesters. The FAFSA closes on July 1st of each year, so please pay close attention to which FAFSA you complete.

It is almost always in the best interest of the student to complete their FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1st each year. When students financial aid packages are being created the date students originally submitted the FAFSA and the date the student completed all processing with the Blinn College are taking into consideration.

There are major changes and improvements coming to the 2024–25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form. Click here to stay informed.

Under the Pay-As-You-Go (PayGo) process, students will be required to pay their tuition in full at the time of registration to avoid having classes dropped due to non-payment. Your classes will not be dropped and you will not be subject to PayGo if you have authorized financial aid on your account (including scholarships); an activated third party contract; or a valid payment plan.*

*Payment plans are not available during Summer semesters (May Minimester, Summer I, and Summer II)
