The U.S. Department of Education has sent out reminders to students encouraging them to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for the new aid year.

Students with valid e-mail addresses on their 2004-2005 FAFSA applications should have received the reminder. Students with no e-mail address on their 2004-2005 FAFSA will receive a paper PIN mailer reminder.

You can complete your FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA for 2005-2006 beginning Saturday, January 1 online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. The 2005-2006 FAFSA will be used for summer 2005, fall 2005 and spring 2006 terms.

Call the Office of Student Financial Aid and Student Employment at (330) 972-7032 with any questions.
