PDRAP Application Process

Applicants can apply for the program the year AFTER they graduated. 

The deadline for submitting an application for PDRAP benefits is May 31st of the calendar year for which benefits are requested. PDRAP applications are assessed based on a participant's financial situation for a calendar year. An application must be made each calendar year for which benefits are claimed. Late applications should be accompanied by a letter explaining any extenuating circumstances for the lateness. If the late application is accepted, any PDRAP benefits will be pro-rated based on the lateness of the application. 

Decisions on complete PDRAP applications will be communicated to participants by letter in June of each year.
