2010-2011 FAFSA Completion & Information Session; February 18th

FAFSA_Flyer_2010_8.5×11

The time has once again arrived to begin applying for financial aid for the upcoming 2010-2011 school year.  The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only application needed at The University of Texas at Austin to apply for grants, work-study, and student loans.  The Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS) will be hosting sessions in order to assist current students to complete the online FAFSA.  We anticipate these sessions will encourage students to apply early and increase their understanding of the financial aid process.  Each session will take place in a computer lab setting, where students will be assisted by financial aid counselors on a walk-in basis.  The FAFSA requires income information for both student and parent(s), and thus 2009 tax returns are recommended when completing the application.  If the 2009 taxes are not available, students can submit the FAFSA using estimates, and thus bring the 2009 W-2’s, or 2008 tax returns.
UT-Austin’s priority deadline is March 31, 2010.
·   NOTE:  If the student is a Top 10% scholarship recipient,  they will need to submit the FAFSA by March 1, 2010

If you have questions, please contact the outreach section of OSFS at 475-6231.
