Encourage Students to File FAFSA Today

TAMPA, Fla. (April 2, 2009) -- The Financial Aid Office is asking faculty and staff to encourage students to maximize their opportunity for financial aid by filing their 2009-2010 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form immediately. FAFSA forms must be completed each year for consideration for federal, state and institutional grant, work study and loan consideration. Some funds are limited, so it is important to apply early.

Students can complete the 2009-2010 FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Students may also visit the Financial Aid Office (1102 SVC) for one-on-one assistance. Extended hours for the month of April are:

April 2009 Financial Aid Office Hours

Monday – Thursday: 8 AM to 7 PM

Fridays: 8 AM to 5 PM

Saturdays: 9 AM to 1 PM


When visiting the Financial Aid Office, students should bring all 2008 tax returns(s) and 2008 W2 form(s) for themselves, spouse, and/or parents (dependent students).
