What Happens If a Due Date Falls on a Weekend

Posted April 3, 2024April 3, 2024

When an application due date falls on a weekend (or Federal holiday, or Washington, DC area Federal office closure) the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day. For example, the May 25, 2024 standard due date for some of our programs falls on a Saturday, which means it slides to Monday, May 27, 2024.

Note that January 25, 2025, the effective due date for many upcoming application and/or peer review changes, also falls on a Saturday and would slide to Monday, January 27, 2025 (see FAQ).
