Any student who filed a FAFSA for the previous year will receive a reminder to complete the Renewal Application on-line. The on-line Renewal Application contains the information that the student entered on the previous year’s application. The student simply needs to update any items that have changed.
Renewal Application reminders will be sent directly to the student’s home address or email address from the Federal processor.
The FAFSA is used to apply for:
Complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 so that it will be received in our office by our April 1 priority deadline. We recommend mailing or completing the FAFSA on the Web (www.fafsa.ed.gov) by March 1 in order to meet this deadline. For most students, the results of the FAFSA, which are sent to us electronically, are all that is required to meet the priority deadline.
When you file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, the Federal processor might select you for verification. If so, you will need to complete the Messiah College Verification Worksheet and submit it to the Messiah College Financial Aid Office. The Financial Aid Instructions contain more information about verification under the section entitled Verification Forms.
