FAFSA Priority "Deadline" Coming Soon!

January 25, 2016

FAFSAReminder! The FAFSA priority filing "deadline" of February 15 is quickly approaching!

Although FAFSAs are processed after this date, completing your initial FAFSA by February 15 assures that your student will receive the maximum amount of financial aid when awards are emailed starting in early March.

  • If you haven’t completed your 2015 federal taxes, that’s OK! You can complete your initial FAFSA using estimated 2015 tax year data.
  • If you have already sent your 2015 federal taxes to the IRS, you are ready to go and can complete your 2016–17 FAFSA anytime. 

As you’re preparing to complete the FAFSA, here’s a great online blog highlighting 11 Common FAFSA Mistakes to avoid! Our financial aid website also provides a range of FAFSA resources, including an archive of the recent "Expert Tips for Completing the FAFSA" webinar.

We want to help you in any way we can. Visit our financial aid website for the most up-to-date information about financial aid at Cedarville. Or, contact us at 937-766-7866.

REMINDER - FAFSA Webinar is tonight!

January 11, 2016

FAFSAIt's not too late — you still have time to register for tonight's free FAFSA webinar!

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to access all need-based financial aid. Even families who may not qualify for a Pell Grant or state aid should complete the FAFSA. The Estimated Family Contribution derived from the FAFSA is used in Cedarville's awarding of institutional aid and provides the opportunity to access subsidized federal student loans as well. 

The FAFSA for the 2016–17 academic year opened on January 1, and now is the time to complete this very important online form. We highly recommend submitting the FAFSA by the priority deadline of February 15 to assure we are able to award the most aid possible when award notifications go out, starting at the beginning of March.

If you’re like most parents — especially for a first child heading to college — the FAFSA may seem overwhelming. Let us help you!

Join us tonight, January 11, at 8 p.m. EST for our next FREE webinar: Expert Tips for Completing the FAFSA

Our financial aid team will help you understand the FAFSA so you can successfully complete it and avoid unnecessary errors or processing delays.

Register now for this informative, FREE webinar and plan to join us tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
