2024–2025 FAFSA Updates

Update as of 2/6/24: The U.S. Department of Education has delayed FAFSA applicant data release to colleges until mid-March 2024. As soon as we are able to access the data, we will work quickly to extend financial aid offers. We now anticipate Butler offers will be sent to incoming students within 3–4 weeks of our office receiving the data.

Our Priority FAFSA Filing Deadline is extended to April 15, 2024. Students will be notified upon receipt of their FAFSA data.

Butler will accept enrollment deposits after May 1, 2024, and will be generous in offering refunds after that date.
