  • Deadline for submitting need-based financial aid applications for the 2020-21 year:
    • Submit the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the Federal Processor. Our FAFSA Code is 003744.

    • Submit copies of student and parent 2018 Federal Tax Returns to the College Board's IDOC Service. IDOC is the College Board's Institutional Document Service, which collects documents required by universities like Richmond. Instructions regarding the IDOC submission process will be provided to you when you complete the CSS Profile.  Be sure to submit a copy of all documents you submit to the IRS.

We encourage students to complete our financial aid application process as outlined above in order to be considered for all forms of need-based financial aid and loans available at the University of Richmond. However, students who wish to apply only for federal financial aid must only complete the FAFSA.

IMPORTANT: The University of Richmond's policy is to fully meet the demonstrated need of its students who submit all required financial aid forms by the stated deadline. Students who demonstrate need but fail to meet the deadline will lose a percentage of their need-based grant and need-based scholarship aid. Therefore, their need will not be fully met.  We assess a 10% reduction in need-based grant/scholarship aid for for applications received after the deadline, up to two months after the deadline. Applications received more than two months late will receive consideration only for limited federal need-based grants and Direct Loans, but not for any other need-based aid.

Number of Days Application is Late: Need-based Grant Eligibility Reduced By:
Up to 60 days 10%
61 or more days
