It’s FAFSA Time Again

Posted on September 27, 2018 | Filed under General News

The FAFSA will be live Monday, October 1, 2018 for the 2019-2020 academic year. If you would like to be considered for federal and need-based aid, please click here to file your FAFSA. Important points to know:
1) Students and parents (as appropriate) will use their 2017 income information to file the 2019-2020 FAFSA. Remember, the Department of Education is asking families to use Prior-Prior Year (PPY) income information. PPY income information makes the FAFSA easier to use since your 2017 taxes have already been completed and the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be immediately available to use. PPY income also ensures accurate information is being added to the FAFSA since families no longer have to estimate income due to incomplete tax information.
2) To receive your maximum financial aid eligibility, please file your 2019-2020 FAFSA by Allegheny College’s priority deadline of February 15, 2019.
3) Be sure you and your parents (as appropriate) have your FSA identifications ready when filing the FAFSA. If you are not sure if you have a FSA ID or if it has expired, please click here to confirm your FSA ID.
4) The 2019-2020 FAFSA is now mobile friendly. The website has been redesigned so that the site pages will fit the screen size and shape of any device. You can now complete the FAFSA form on a mobile device with the same ease as on a desktop or laptop computer.
