MEFA night: Thursday, October 27th

Did you know that families planning to send a child to college next fall can file their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) starting next month? The U.S. Department of Education has moved the FAFSA filing date up to October 1. The benefits of the earlier filing date are:
  • Families will now use 2015 income and tax information
  • This will eliminate the need for families to estimate incomes when completing the FAFSA
  • FAFSA applicants can retrieve their tax data directly from the IRS
The FAFSA is available by visiting fafsa.gov.
If you have questions regarding financial aid, please join us on our MEFA (Massachusetts Education Finance Authority) night on Thursday, October 27 at 6-7pm in the auditorium.
