How long does it usually take to hear back from a school about financial aid?

Question by : How long does it usually take to hear back from a school about financial aid?
I applied and was accepted to Wasatch Academy, a boarding high school in Utah….my mom filled out a fafsa form to apply for financial aid a while ago, maybe last month. We have not heard back from them.
I was wondering how long it usually takes to hear back about financial aid.

It depends… this year is a little weird. The feds are still struggling through their budget process to figure out what to do with the Pell Grant and some other grants for next year. Some schools are sending out estimated awards, but a lot of schools are holding onto financial aid awards until they know more info about what to tell you. Hopefully within the next month the final grant numbers will be released, and then schools will be able to let you know what you’ll be eligible for.
