Welcome Returning Students

Academic Year 2023/2024

Financial Aid Priority Deadline - December 2, 2022 EXTENDED TO JANUARY 27, 2023 

Returning students with complete aid applications submitted by our priority deadline will have access to their 2023-2024 financial aid offers in the student system in May.  Students will receive an email when their financial aid is ready to be viewed.

Late Applications- Financial aid awards will first be determined for all applications completed and received on-time.  Late applications will be considered on a funds-available basis.  

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.
