2014-15 FAFSA applications

As the new year approaches, it will soon be time to file your income tax returns for 2013 and submit a 2014-15 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Due to the government shut down this fall, the tax season is expected to be delayed. The IRS should determine the start date of the new tax season soon.

Please remember that filing the FAFSA early is important as it helps students maximize the amount of financial aid that they are offered. The Data Retrieval Tool function on the FAFSA is highly recommended as it helps provide the most accurate tax information. The FAFSA can be completed at www.fafsa.gov.

Parent email newsletter

About every two weeks during the academic year, the University Parent Program sends an email with current news from the University, talking points for helping your student succeed, and notices of career fairs, upcoming deadlines, and special events for students and families. However, we do not have parents’ email addresses. If you are not receiving emails about every two weeks with a subject heading of “University Parent—(date),” please send your email address to parent@umn.edu, and we will put you on the listserv.
