FAFSA application now available to students

George Andersen

The 2018-2019 Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA) application is now available to students, according to an email sent out by the financial aid office.

This year, the financial aid office and students had problems with financial aid, which was addressed at the state of the university by Amy Ballagh, vice president of student affairs and enrollment management.

“This is why it is so important for you to apply for financial aid as soon as the application is available, and to quickly respond to financial aid when additional information is requested,” Ballagh said.

The application became available Oct 1., and the priority date is Feb.1 2018. According to the financial aid office, it is important to apply by the priority date because “funds are limited for some campus need-based financial aid.”

The Federal Student Aid YouTube channel posted a video last year on how to fill out the FAFSA. You can watch it here.
