Time Running Out to Complete the FAFSA
April 28, 2022
Students who want to be given priority consideration for state of Michigan financial aid programs have only a few days remaining to submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid, according to the Michigan Department of Treasury.
Known simply as the "FAFSA," this application is a critical step when applying for grants, scholarships and other forms of financial assistance. FAFSA submissions received at the federal processor on or before May 1 are given priority consideration for the Michigan Competitive Scholarship and Michigan Tuition Grant.
Students who wait to complete their FAFSA after the May 1 deadline may not receive all the financial aid they could have been entitled to receive.
"If you haven’t done so yet, complete your FAFSA today," said Robin Lott, executive director of Treasury's Office of Postsecondary Financial Planning. "This application is free and can help ensure you get as much financial aid as possible. Please reach out to us if you have any questions."
Prior to completing the FAFSA online, the student must obtain a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at www.fafsa.gov. This ID serves as a legal signature and confirms an applicant's identity when accessing financial aid information through certain U.S. Department of Education websites.
Administered by Treasury, MI Student Aid is Michigan's go-to resource for finding the financial resources needed to pay for college. For more information, contact MI Student Aid at email@example.com, 1-888-447-2687 or @mistudentaid on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.
