Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) FAFSA Update


The Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) is working with higher education institutions across Maryland to have a timeline in place for the awarding process of state funds to eligible applicants.


MHEC anticipates the first round of awards will be completed by May 1 including all eligible applicants who have completed a FAFSA by April 15.  

Eligible applicants who have completed the FAFSA by May 1 are anticipated to be awarded by May 15.

Eligible applicants who complete the FAFSA by May 15 (i.e. priority deadline date) will be guaranteed to be awarded.


Please Note: The Maryland Higher Education Commission’s proposed timeline is            dependent on the U.S. Department of Education’s timeline and is subject to change.
