It’s that time of the year again! It is time to renew your FAFSA and PHEAA grant application. Make sure that you complete both before your school’s deadline for returning students. Better yet, complete your FAFSA NOW and do not wait until the deadline. This will allow you time to address any challenges that may arise. If you need help, do not wait until the last minute to contact a staff person in the Financial Aid office on your campus.
- If your 2015 income information is not available, use estimated numbers from 2014. You can go back later and use the IRS data retrieval tool to import tax information and save yourself verification steps! The tool will be available as of February 7, 2016.
- Make sure you know your FSA ID. If you need assistance logging in with your FSA ID, contact FAFSA at 1-800-557-7394
- After completing and submitting your FAFSA, do not forget to click on the link on your confirmation page that will allow you to complete your PHEAA State Grant application.
- Check with your school about whether the CSS Profile or an institutional financial aid application is required for returning students.
