** Important** FAFSA DEADLINES

IMPORTANT COLLEGE REMINDER FOR ALL SENIOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS:  FAFSA DEADLINES

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This form is used to determine the amount of money a family is expected to contribute to the price of attending a postsecondary institution. The results of the FAFSA are used in determining student grants, work study, and loan amounts. The FAFSA application is critical because it is used for Federal Pell Grants as well as Minnesota State Grants and other financial aid offered by colleges and universities. You must apply separately for many scholarships.

Fill out the application (which is only offered online) at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ completely and accurately, and be sure to get it in on time. Even a minor problem with the form could result in delays or the loss of financial assistance.  You can find each school’s deadline either at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ , or on the school’s website under the Financial Aid/ Admissions icon.

Important:  Do not go to http://www.fafsa.com to fill out the FAFSA application.  This site charges you to fill out the free FAFSA form.
