FAFSA Deadline Causes Confusion for
Shawnee State University Students
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
deadline has been causing a lot of student confusion.
Monday, Feb. 15 will be the deadline for students who want
to be considered for “financially need-based scholarships.”
15 students will need to apply for these scholarships, have
transcripts submitted to admissions and have their FAFSA
submitted,” Barb Bradbury, director of Financial Aid said.
SSU students, who are applying for financial aid, are
encouraged to submit their application by March or April
because some forms of financial aid are awarded first
students apply for FAFSA the sooner they’ll be able to know
their aid award and if their award is large enough, to make
sure they have everything in line to purchase books before
they need them,” Bradbury said.
