Your completed application package must be received by the deadline date for each semester. You must submit the completed APPLICATION FOR EDUCATION ASSISTANCE and the CONSENT TO REQUEST AND OBTAIN INFORMATION by the deadline to be considered.
There are times when all other supporting documentation is not available at the application deadline date. For example, if you are applying to go to school in September you must have your application into the GRPSEO by May 1st prior to your start date. If you are applying to go to a post secondary education institution for the first time, chances are that you will not have a Letter of Acceptance by May 1st from the post secondary institution that you hope to attend. The Letter of Acceptance can come into the GRPSEO after the deadline of May 1st however your file cannot be processed until all documents are in.
The application deadlines for all applicants are as follows:
- February 1 - Summer semester
- May 1 - Fall or Fall/Winter semester(s)
- October 1 - Winter semester
If you apply for a full academic year, you may be approved for two consecutive academic semesters (not usually less than eight months duration) normally beginning in September of the academic year.
It is your responsibility to follow up with documents by due dates for both the GRPSEO and your post secondary institution. For example, if you have NOT been advised that your funding has been approved by the date that a deposit is required to hold your seat then you must make the decision to place a deposit on your own or not.
The GRPSEO makes every effort to work with students to meet the deadlines of your institution but this is not always possible due to the number of students applying for funding and the dates when documents are received at the GRPSEO.
