Ivy Tech sets financial aid workshops in Kokomo

FAFSA must be filed by March 10 to meet state deadline for 2015-16 financial aid

KOKOMO, Ind. – Ivy Tech Community College Kokomo Region is scheduling a series of workshops in Kokomo to help students and their families complete the 2015-16 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as the FAFSA, for the 2015-16 school year, which begins Aug. 21.

Ivy Tech financial aid advisors will be available at workshops at the Kokomo Event & Conference Center on these dates:

o Wednesday, Feb. 25, 3 to 6 p.m.
o Tuesday, March 3, 4 to 6 p.m.
o Wednesday, March 4, 3 to 6 p.m.
o Thursday, March 5, 3 to 6 p.m.
o Monday, March 9, 1 to 6 p.m.

All students seeking federal and state grants, loans and scholarships, as well as other financial awards, must complete the FAFSA form. Information required to file the FAFSA includes dates of birth and Social Security numbers for applicant and parents, household income and tax filing status (i.e., head of household, single, married). Parent information is required for all students under age 24 unless married or with legal dependents; parents of such students also can attend one of the workshops and file on behalf of their student.

The workshops are open to new high school graduates, as well as adults coming back to school, who want to enter college during the 2015-16 school year and will allow them to meet the March 10 priority date for financial aid. The FAFSA must be received by March 10 to be considered for Indiana state scholarships and grants. In addition, certain campus-based financial aid awards have limited funding and are awarded only to eligible students who complete the FAFSA by that date.

The workshops will be in Room 812 of the Kokomo Event & Conference Center. Participants are encouraged to park on the north side of the building and enter through the north door. For more information on the workshops, contact Dara Johnson at 765-459-0561, ext. 240, or djohnson145@ivytech.edu .
