The priority aid deadline is an application deadline for each, individual college or university.
It is the last date that all scholarships, grants, work-study, state financial aid, tuition reductions and other financial assistance is available to students who apply to that school; as long as they apply before the priority aid deadline.
The priority aid deadline is industry jargon that means financial aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students who apply to a school later than the priority aid deadline, get financial aid awards taken from a smaller pool of funds.
Ask your target schools for their priority aid deadline. It may be on the college application or on the web page for the college's financial aid department.
I could not go to YouTube for a video about priority aid deadlines because most of the videos are incorrect.
