Student aid applications now available
Rep. Karen Boback (R-Co-
lumbia/Luzerne/ Wyoming)
reminds students that the
2012-13 Free Application for
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
is now available for comple-
The FAFSA determines eli-
gibility for federal grants, the
need-based Pennsylvania
State Grant, certain scholar-
ships, reduced-cost federal
student loans, work-study pro-
grams and many school-based
student aid programs.
Institutions of higher educa-
tion may have varying finan-
cial aid deadlines so students
are encouraged to complete
the forms early.
The deadline for the Penn-
sylvania State Grant is May 1
for all applicants submitting a
renewal and first-time appli-
cants in degree and transfer
Boback noted that appli-
cants should be wary of orga-
nizations that charge for as-
sistance in completing or sub-
mitting the FAFSA form, as
free assistance is available
through PHEA and there is no
cost to submit the application.
The Pennsylvania Higher
Education Assistance Agency
(PHEAA) offers free FAFSA
completion sessions across
the Commonwealth from Ja-
nuary through April. The FAF-
SA form can be accessed di-
rectly at
most major insurances.
