Press release from the University of Saint Francis:
University of Saint Francis offers FAFSA assistance
(December 22, 2010) – On Monday, Jan. 17, financial aid staff at the University of Saint Francis will provide assistance filling out the 2011-2012 free application for federal student aid (FAFSA). The public is invited to stop by the university’s Pope John Paul II Center, Room 110, anytime between 1 and 4 p.m.
USF financial aid staff will be on hand to answer questions about the form and assist students in completing their FAFSA. Applicants will need to bring their most recent federal tax return, W2 and other income information in order to complete this online application.
All college students who plan to enroll at a higher education institution in the 2011-2012 school year must complete a FAFSA in order to be considered for financial aid.
Submitting a FAFSA is a crucial part in determining a student’s financial aid. Federal, state and most institutional assistance is determined by the results of the FASFA. This assistance includes scholarships, grants, loans and work-study opportunities.
The FAFSA may be submitted anytime after Jan. 1, 2011. However, the priority deadline to be considered for grant eligibility from the state of Indiana is March 10, 2011. It is crucial that students meet this deadline to maximize their aid eligibility.
Questions should be directed to the University of Saint Francis Office of Financial Aid at (260) 399-8003.
The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890, is a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offering undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 2,300 students from a broad geographic region.
