Filing deadline for SU '10 financial aid

The priority application date for Summer 2010 financial aid is April 1. If you plan to apply for financial aid to pay for your summer courses make sure to submit your application by this date to receive your award prior to the start of classes. Here are some helpful time-saving tips from FAFSA on the web:
  • Plan ahead - Gather required information like your Social Security Number, driver´s license, income tax returns and investment records before you begin. For a complete listing of the documents you will need to complete the FAFSA, select Documents Needed.
  • Sneak a peek - Print a FAFSA on the Web Worksheet to see how the FAFSA is organized; ask your parents to provide you with the information requested of them (if you are a dependent student).
  • Take it one step at a time - Once you begin filling out your FAFSA, you can save it whenever you want, and then complete and submit it later at your convenience.
