What you need to know about the 2017-18 FAFSA and Financial Aid Process

If you plan to be enrolled in degree program at Bloomsburg University in the 2017-2018 academic year (Summer 2017, Fall 2017, or Spring 2018 semesters) and require financial aid, please remember to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2017-2018 academic year if you have not already done so. The FAFSA is required to process all forms of financial aid including grants, loans, and work-study.

• File your 2017-18 FAFSA for free at www.fafsa.gov starting Oct. 1, 2016. Remember, if you are a Pennsylvania resident and enrolled as an undergraduate, the FAFSA must be submitted prior to May 1, 2017, for you to be considered for a PHEAA State Grant.

• When completeing the FAFSA, use tax information from the prior-prior year (2015).

• Upperclassmen packaging for the 2017-18 academic year will occur after the Spring 2017 grades have been posted in MyHusky.

• A signed FERPA form must be on file in order to release information to anyone other than the student.

Reminder: Our official means of communication is through your BU email. Make sure you check it frequently and take action on necessary items immediately.
