Application Filing Deadlines

*The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the required application for all State financial aid programs and grants.* The Commission uses FAFSA data to generate State financial aid awards. Please complete the FAFSA prior to applying for any State financial aid awards or specialty programs (allow 5-7 business days for processing).

FAFSA Filing Information

In addition to the FAFSA, the Commission requires an additional application for its specialty programs and grants. The annual application deadline for these programs are provided below.

PLEASE NOTE: Some institutions may require separate, supplemental or institutional forms for financial aid programs. Please contact your institution's financial aid office for more information.

FAFSA FILING INFORMATION

In order to be eligible for state financial aid, students must complete the correct academic year's FAFSA by the deadline (April 15th annually). The exceptions to this deadline are the Adult Student Grant (FAFSA must be filed at least 5-7 days before applying), and state financial aid for military and public safety officers.

A student's FAFSA may have issues (known as edits) that pertain only to State of Indiana award and scholarship programs. A student should check his or her ScholarTrack account for a list of any edits that may be on the FAFSA.

Even if a student's or parent's Federal income taxes are not complete by the FAFSA filing deadline, the FAFSA should be filed on or before the appropriate FAFSA deadline using ESTIMATED tax information.

The Commission administers State financial aid only and is not affiliated with FAFSA. For assistance with completing the FAFSA, please contact the Federal Student Aid Information Center: 1-800-4FED-AID (1-800-433-3243).
