When Will My Student Receive a Financial Aid Package?

November 18, 2016

FAFSA logoWith changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opening date this year, universities like Cedarville are now able to award financial aid packages up to three months earlier than before.

The FAFSA opened on October 1 (instead of January 1), and families were able to use tax information from two years ago to complete it (known as prior-prior year or PPY). This allows you to complete your FAFSA much sooner, without having to wait until the current year tax information is complete.

The good news for students and their families is they will now know much sooner what the final cost of their education will be, allowing them to make their final college decision earlier in their senior year.

Cedarville University plans to send award notifications to new incoming students in January

If you have not yet completed the FAFSA, visit fafsa.gov and complete it soon or check out our FAFSA filing instructions!
