Seniors who still haven’t filed the FAFSA: Indiana has announced that the state’s March 10th FAFSA deadline will be extended until April 15th this year! The process for families became more complicated this year due to a glitch in the IRS retrieval tool. Students and their families can now go back in to file the FAFSA if they have not done so, or go back in if the tax import tool did not work for them. Take advantage of this second chance to possibly qualify for funds from the State and/or Federal government for college! Don’t miss this new deadline!

You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.
