Staff from Purdue’s Division of Financial Aid and Ivy-Tech Lafayette’s Financial Aid office will offer a second 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)/financial aid information session in Ivy-Tech’s, Ivy Hall auditorium on Wednesday, February 6th, 2019 from 6:30-8pm. This is a general information session only and we will not be filing the FAFSA. Everyone is invited.
A second College Goal Sunday (CGS) http://www.collegegoalsunday.org/ event will be held at 2pm on Sunday February 24, 2019 at Ivy-Tech Lafayette. Students/families will be able to file their FAFSA at https://fafsa.ed.gov during the CGS event. Staff from both Purdue and Ivy-Tech will be on hand to assist.
The 2019-20 FAFSA will collect 2017 student/parent tax information so families who have filed should not update the FAFSA with 2018 information as they complete their taxes.
The FAFSA website currently has this announcement for students/families getting ready to file the FAFSA:
- The IRS Data Retrieval Tool will be unavailable from 6 a.m.–noon Eastern time on Saturday, Jan. 12, due to maintenance. During this time, students can still complete and submit a FAFSA® form by entering the necessary tax return information manually.
- Check out the new myStudentAid app for iOS and Android.
- To get the best experience, make sure your browser’s pop-up blocker allows pop-ups from fafsa.ed.gov before logging in to the FAFSA form.
The FAFSA form will be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance every Sunday from 3–11 a.m. Eastern time.
It is best that both the student and one parent request a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid?_ga=2.151198206.69791068.1534171793-770185239.1532609084 prior to filing the FAFSA online. Students should contact the college/school that they hope to attend to find out what their priority FAFSA filing date is, but many Indiana colleges use a March 1 priority date. April 15th is the Indiana due date for students who may be eligible for state-based financial aid.
Have a great semester!
Let me know if you have any questions.
