FAFSA forms

All current and newly admitted Purdue University students must file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1 to receive priority consideration for federal, state and university-controlled financial aid.

“Students may still file after March 1, but the amount and types of aid could be limited,” said David Reseigh, outreach coordinator at Purdue’s Division of Financial Aid. “Our office has been busy providing financial aid filing information to current and admitted students and families through e-mail, area outreach programs and our Web site. We’ve been reminding them of the approaching deadline.”

Additional events will take place in February to help students and families with the FAFSA filing process:

  • FAFSA Friday – Two free webinars will take place from noon to 2 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. on Feb. 12 and Feb. 19. Students can go online to http://www.LearnMoreIndiana.org to watch the programs. Division of Financial Aid staff also will host a venue to watch the webinars at Purdue’s Visitor Information Center, Room 112, located at 504 Northwestern Ave. A daily parking pass can be purchased at the center for the afternoon events.
  • College Goal Sunday – For additional help with the FAFSA process, students may attend College Goal Sunday at 2 p.m. Feb. 21 at a statewide location near them. Students can go online to http://www.collegegoalsunday.org for a list of all the venues. The local site is Ivy Hall at Ivy Tech Community College, 3101 S. Creasy Lane in Lafayette.

“The steps for filing the FAFSA have become more streamlined,” Reseigh said. “The Department of Education has been able to reduce the number of questions asked on the FAFSA on the Web application.”

Details on obtaining a personal identification number to sign and file the FAFSA are available at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov
