Key Dates and Deadlines

In order for you to be considered for the federal student aid at VIU, it is very important to complete the FAFSA, VIU Admission Process, and VIU Federal Financial Aid Application process by the deadlines. We encourage you to apply to VIU as soon as possible to avoid any delay in the federal financial aid application process.

***Reminder: You must be accepted through VIU admissions before submitting the VIU Federal Financial Aid Application. You are welcome to submit the FAFSA any time before the deadline, the earlier the better!
