IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR SENIORS ABOUT FINANCIAL AID.
You can begin filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on October 1st -- which means you can file the FAFSA now!
You will use your parents’ tax information from 2017 to file the FAFSA for the 2019-20 school year. The FAFSA is solely based off of 2017 taxes, so you WON’T have to update the FAFSA with 2018 taxes. Visit www.fafsa.gov to file the form.
This extended timeline is beneficial to you because it will allow you to receive your financial aid award letters early in the spring semester. This will give you more time to make a final decision about where you want to go to school. You may receive financial aid award letters as early as January or February, and you still have until May 1st to make your final decisions.
You can also visit a FAFSA Ready Iowa event which offers free assistance without an appointment. Visit www.icansucceed.org/fafsareadyiaevents to find a location near you.
