The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) became active on October 1, 2016. Therefore, some colleges have moved their financial aid priority dates to a much earlier date. The financial aid priority date is a date set by a college in which the college requests that the FAFSA be completed. This is a date that is not so much a deadline, but is a date that will put the student in the best position for financial aid. Some of the earliest dates locally are:
Iowa State University – December 1, 2016
University of Iowa – December 1, 2016
Faith Baptist Bible College – December 15, 2016
University of Northern Iowa – January 15, 2016
Creighton University – January 15, 2016

For any out-of-state colleges, please visit their college website or call the college financial aid website.
*Remember that our Financial Aid - FAFSA Presentation is at 6:30 p.m. in our Multipurpose Room on Monday, October 10.
