FAFSA Deadline Extended

Indiana’s March 10th financial aid filing deadline has been extended to April 15th.

The extension is due to recent issues with a federal data retrieval tool that complicated the process for families attempting to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.

Beyond determining eligibility for state and federal financial aid, colleges use information from the FAFSA to determine their scholarship awards.

Filing the FAFSA is particularly important for Indiana’s 21st Century Scholars who will not receive their scholarship that pays for up to four years of college tuition if they don’t complete the FAFSA.
