Financial Aid Disclosures

Constitution Day

Every year on September 17, the Office of Financial Aid marks the signing of the final draft of the Constitution by putting on a program and/or event. A federal law enacted in December 2004 designates September 17 as “Constitution Day and Citizenship Day” to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Under this law, every school that receives federal funding for the fiscal year is required to hold an educational program for students designed around the Constitution.

To celebrate Constitution Day, the Office of Financial Aid invites you to test your knowledge of the most important legal document ever created by finding out What’s your Constitution I.Q.?
