Priority Filing Deadlines

To help students plan for their educational journey, the Financial Aid Office has set priority deadlines for each Semester Block Term. It is very important that you are aware of the priority deadline associated with your preferred course start date. By submitting all required information on or before the priority deadline, eligible students will have their:

  • Anticipated financial aid award processed in time to defer tuition payment, and their spot in classes held.
  • Book Advance issued to their Money Network™ account through MSRP prior to the start of class.
  • Financial aid disbursements released to their account in accordance with a published schedule

Deadlines & Book Advance Timelines


Summer Financial Aid is awarded AFTER a student has enrolled in summer courses. The Financial Aid Office at Rio Salado College will award financial aid funds to students who meet the priority filing deadline based on the student semester block start date.
