We can not overemphasize the extreme importance of completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or Renewal FAFSA as soon as possible after the first of the year, regardless of whether you completed your 2010 IRS income tax return. If you do not meet the priority filing date, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible.
Completed applications received after April 30th, may not be processed for all the aids for which you may be eligible to receive because certain funds may be exhausted, such as Federal Work-Study, Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, and institutional grants and scholarships.
