Hoosier students can apply for state financial aid through April 15, 2022

Hoosier students and families planning to attend college in 2022 are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is now open for the 2022-2023 school year. To get the maximum financial aid, students should apply by November 1, 2021.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education reminds Hoosiers that filing the FAFSA by April 15, 2022 is imperative for securing money for college and accessing some of the $390 million in state financial aid and billions of dollars in federal aid available for learners.

“Regardless of family income, filing the FAFSA is an important first step for anyone interested in education and training beyond high school,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “It’s surprising how much money is left on the table each year because many Hoosiers assume they don’t qualify for state or federal financial aid. There is a significant amount of funding available to help with the cost of college, but you must at least have a FAFSA on file to use it.”

SHS Seniors can find detailed instructions for creating and filling out the FAFSA on their CANVAS IMPACT page inside the Senior Class module.

There will be a Financial Aid workshop at SHS on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 6 p.m. Plan to bring your questions and concerns to learn more about completing the FAFSA.
