Apply Now for 2013-2014 Financial Aid
Returning to SUNYIT for 2013-2014? All students receiving financial aid (loans, grants, scholarships, work study) are asked to ensure that their existing 2012-2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov contains their most current e-mail address and financial information. In January and February of 2013, students will receive a Renewal Reminder e-mail from Federal Student Aid encouraging them to re-apply for financial aid for the 2013-2014 academic year.
It is a good idea to apply early – between January 1 and March 1 as some funds are depleted the closer it gets to the start of the Fall 2013 semester and if selected for verification, the financial aid process may be delayed. Don’t lose out…APPLY EARLY!
Don’t have your federal tax return completed yet? No problem! Submit your FAFSA using estimated income figures. Once your 2012 federal tax return(s) are on file with the IRS, you’ll be able to log back into your FAFSA and update your figures to match those reported to the IRS via the Data Retrieval Tool.
New! The Data Retrieval Tool is an easier way to provide tax information! With just a few simple steps, students and parents who have filed their federal tax return with the IRS will be able to view and transfer their tax information from the IRS into their FAFSA.
