2019-2020 Financial Aid Reminder "FASFA" from Tina Tanzi Linda A LeaheyShow MyInfo popup for Linda A Leahey 10/15/2018 8:00:00 AM

2019-2020 Financial Aid Reminder

Beginning October 1st, you can start filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2019-2020 academic year. All students must reapply for all financial aid resources each academic year. This includes grants, scholarships, loans, tuition remission, and the federal work-study program.

The FAFSA must be filed online at www.fafsa.gov. You and your parent (if applicable) will need your FSA ID’s in order to sign the FAFSA electronically. You and your parent (if applicable) will also need your completed 2017 Federal Tax Return to complete the FAFSA. To complete the tax section on FAFSA, we highly recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. This allows you to transfer your IRS Data directly into the FAFSA form.

Many of the financial aid resources are awarded on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested in Federal Work-Study, make sure you answer “YES” to the question on the FAFSA or you will not be considered for this resource. MAC prefers you to file your FAFSA by April 1, 2019.

If you are graduating in May and are considering returning for 2019-2020, you should complete your FAFSA so that you do not miss the May 1st State Grant deadline.

Join us on Wednesday, October 31st from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm in Cosgrave for our “Halloween FAFSA Day”. Let us answer your frightening FAFSA questions and enjoy some ghoulish snacks. A prize will be awarded to the student with the best costume who stops by the table!

If you need assistance in filing the FAFSA, we are offering FAFSA Thursday’s on Oct. 11, 18, 25 and Nov. 8 in the Financial Aid Office. We are also offering a FAFSA Completion Event on November 15th in Main 233, which allows you to select from three timeframes (3 pm – 4 pm,
4 pm – 5 pm, or 5 pm – 6 pm).

Please stop by the office, email us at financialaid@mtaloy.edu, or call 814-886-6357 to register for the FAFSA Thursday’s or the FAFSA Completion Event.

Best wishes for a successful semester,
The Financial Aid Office and Enrollment Management Division
