FAFSA for the 2012-2013 academic year now available


Wednesday, January 04, 2012
With 2012 underway, you now have the opportunity to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2012-2013 academic year. Completing this document is of the utmost importance if you require financial aid for college.

Prospective and current college students can complete the FAFSA online by visiting the U.S. Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Web site, www.fafsa.ed.gov.

In addition to filling out and submitting the form online, you can choose from two other filing options. If you prefer to fill out a paper document, you can print out a PDF of the form and send it by mail, or you can request a paper FAFSA by phone by calling 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or 319-337-5665.

Check with the colleges to which you are applying to see if they have a deadline for filing for financial aid. If they do, make sure you have completed the FAFSA by that date. The FAFSA is also used by state agencies to award grants and scholarships to college-bound students. You can find filing deadlines for all state financial aid on the FAFSA Web site. It is important that you adhere to all deadlines as funds may be limited. The earliest FAFSA deadline is February 15 for students in Connecticut, with more state deadlines to follow in March.

In order to receive federal financial aid, which includes Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants, TEACH Grants, Perkins Loans and Stafford Loans, you must meet certain requirements. For instance, you must be a U.S. citizen; have a valid social security number; have a high school diploma, GED, or Ability-to-Benefit certificate; attend a participating school; and demonstrate financial need.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800676981-ADNFCR
