2014-15 FAFSA Reminder

Remember to file your FAFSA! You must reapply through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year. For next academic year you will want to complete the 2014-2015 FAFSA. Please remember that deadlines are extremely important.

The Office of Financial Aid will begin creating returning student awards March 1. We strongly encourage you to complete your FAFSA as early as possible. You can use your estimated tax information rather than wait for your official 2013 tax returns to be completed. By estimating and completing the FAFSA earlier, you will receive your financial aid award while still on campus this spring and can work with our aid staff with any questions or concerns that you may have. Remember that your award will be based on full-time status and the housing status you indicate on the FAFSA. If your plans change, it is important to make the Financial Aid Office aware so you award reflects any changes.

Visit the Financial Aid website for the application checklist. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid with any questions.
