State Extends FAFSA Filing Deadline Beyond April 15th!

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education has extended the filing deadline for the 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beyond the state’s original April 15 deadline. Students who did not file the FAFSA before the April 15 deadline should submit the form at as soon as possible. Filing the FAFSA is one of the most important steps in the college-going process and can help students and families better afford college and other higher education opportunities. Students must have a current FAFSA on file to qualify for state and federal financial aid and many merit-based scholarships also require a completed FAFSA. “With over $350 million available in state financial aid each year, Indiana is committed to making postsecondary education affordable for all Hoosiers,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “But students and families must file the FAFSA for consideration and by extending the deadline, we can make sure more Hoosiers can access financial aid.” There is no set date for the deadline extension and limited funding will be released on a first-come, first-served basis. It is critical for students or families who were not able to file by the original deadline to file quickly. The extension applies to Indiana’s financial aid programs, including the 21st Century Scholarship and the Frank O’Bannon Grant. (There is no FAFSA deadline for Hoosiers applying for the Next Level Jobs Workforce Ready Grant.)
