Help with completing the FAFSA

Staff from Purdue’s Division of Financial Aid and Ivy-Tech Lafayette’s Financial Aid office will once again offer two Indiana Student Financial Aid Association (ISFAA) sponsored FAFSA information sessions in Ivy-Tech’s, Ivy Hall auditorium  on Tuesday October 23, 2018 and on Wednesday February 6, 2019.  These are general information sessions only and you will not be filing the FAFSA at the sesions.  I have attached a flyer with these dates.

College Goal Sunday http://www.collegegoalsunday.org/ will be held on two dates, Sunday October 28, 2018 and on Sunday February 24, 2019.  These will also be held at Ivy-Tech Lafayette locally.  Students/families will be able to file their FAFSA at the College Goal Sunday events.  Staff from both Purdue and Ivy-Tech will be on hand to assist families.

If you haven’t been on the https://fafsa.ed.gov/ website recently, it has changed.  The Feds say it is more mobile, smart phone, tablet, laptop friendly https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/about/announcements/fafsa-mobile-options. Time will tell.

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.  2019-20 FAFSA filing can begin as early as October 1, 2018 but students shouldn’t feel rushed to complete the online form that quickly.  Students should contact the college/school that they hope to attend, find out what their priority FAFSA filing date is, then file the FAFSA prior to that date.
