2024-2025 FAFSA

Posted on February 8, 2024 | Filed under General News

As you have heard, the launch of the 2024-2025 FAFSA has met several challenges. Another delay has recently been announced.

There is some good news, however. The latest update from the Department of Education will benefit many FAFSA filers by increasing their aid eligibility. The Department is amending the calculations to account for inflation which will protect a greater portion of a family’s income and assets from being considered in the Student Aid Index (SAI).

Unfortunately, that means that FAFSAs will not be sent to schools until the first half of March. Further delays could happen as FAFSAs will be released to colleges in batches. The Department is currently estimating that it will take them a few weeks to deliver them all.

Be assured that Allegheny’s Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting families through this stressful time, and is prepared to respond swiftly once the FAFSAs are released. Financial aid awards will be sent to prospective students as quickly as possible.

We are encouraging all students to complete the 2024-2025 FAFSA as soon as possible. For students that have started, but not yet successfully completed the 2024-2025 FAFSA, here are the known issues that the Department of Education is working to resolve. For any other complications, students can reach out to our Financial Aid Office at fao@allegheny.edu or 1-800-835-7780 or the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-433-3243.

Winter Safety Tips for Walking On Snow and Ice

Posted on February 7, 2024 | Filed under General News

It is important for individuals to recognize the hazards of slippery walks, roadways, and other areas – including indoor spaces where snow and ice melt after being tracked in from outside. There are several things that can be done to reduce the risk of falling when slippery conditions exist.

Here are some helpful hints:

  • Wear boots – proper footwear is well insulated, waterproof, with wide, low heels and a thick, non-slip tread on the sole.
  • Take small steps to keep your center of balance under you.
  • Walk slowly and never run on ice/wet surfaces.
  • Keep both hands free for balance (as opposed to being kept in your pockets).
  • Watch where you’re going.
  • Test potentially slick areas by tapping your foot on them.
  • Step, don’t jump, from vehicles and equipment.
  • Walk in walkways as much as possible – taking shortcuts over snow piles and areas where snow and ice removal is not feasible can be hazardous.
  • Plan ahead – give yourself sufficient time and plan your route.
  • Wipe your feet, use floor mats when entering a building – in addition to keeping floors clean, mats are also used to remove moisture from the soles of your shoes.
  • Use handrails where available.

Please note that there will be times where conditions may require extra caution when walking on campus, including the potential for black ice. Stay safe out there!

You can find more winter safety tips on the Safety Committee website.
