The 2014-2015 Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FASFA) is available now for students wishing to attend OSUIT for the next academic school year starting Fall Term, 2014. Just go to www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Remember, there are additional federal and state grants available to students if the FAFSA form is filed before March 1st, 2014.
Students/parents who file before March 1st will have one of three options available to them when filing:
Students and parents may have to file a correction FAFSA to update with 2013 tax information once taxes are filed with the IRS. This may change the Estimated Family Contribution, or EFC, which determines how much Pell Grant a student may receive.
Call or stop by the Financial Aid and Scholarships office with any questions!
