General Information

2014-2015 FAFSA ON THE WEB

Students and parents may link to the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to help provide accurate tax information when completing their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The IRS DRT will be available early February 2014 for the 2014-2015 application. This tool provides a faster and more accurate method of completing the FAFSA.

FOR NEW UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: Our Priority FAFSA filing deadline is March 1, 2014. This will allow us to provide freshmen and transfer applicants with their financial aid award packages in a timely fashion. You may estimate income data on the FAFSA application. Once taxes are filed you will need to update your FAFSA with correct income data from taxes.

FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS AND CONTINUING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: Because we are encouraging students to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, we are moving our Priority FAFSA filing deadline to May 1, 2014.

Federal Update

Students looking to take out subsidized federal loans for the first time will face new regulations and limits on how much they can borrow.  Starting July 1, 2013 students applying for a Direct Subsidized Loan will be limited to borrowing only enough money to cover one-and-a-half times the length of their program of study. 

This means, that an undergraduate student working on a four year degree will be able to borrow only enough to cover two additional years of schooling, should extra time be needed to graduate. The maximum subsidized loan will be for six years for a four year bachelor’s degree.

These changes are an effort to help students reduce the debt they accumulate during their college years. If a student is still in need of money, they will be limited to unsubsidized loans, scholarships, grants and student employment.

The new regulations will apply only to new borrowers, so a student taking out a loan on or before June 30, 2013 will not be subject to the limitation.
