Welcome Returning Students

Academic Year 2019/2020

Financial Aid Extended Priority Deadline- December 14, 2018

Financial Aid Final Deadline- January 23, 2019

Returning students with complete aid applications submitted by our extended January 23rd deadline will have access to their 2019-2020 financial aid awards in the student system beginning Tuesday, May 7th.  Students will receive an email when their award is ready to be viewed, on that date and on a rolling basis thereafter.  

Adjustments to financial aid for students studying abroad in the fall semester of 2019-2020 will be made in May.  A message on the financial aid award-by-year tab in the Skidmore Student System will indicate those financial aid changes. 

Students studying abroad during the spring 2020 semester will have their spring financial aid revised in November.  

As you prepare for another year in college, you are reminded that applying for financial assistance is a yearly process. Each year the aid application materials must be completed and submitted by the College's processing deadlines in order for your aid eligibility to be determined for the next academic year.

We are excited about having you back at Skidmore College and look forward to assisting you with the financial aid process. Please select the appropriate category below to learn about the documents you need to complete, along with their deadlines.
