Students and parents may soon be receiving emails and mobile notifications, reminding that that it’s not too late to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Federal Student Aid (an office of the U.S. Department of Education) began sending emails and mobile app push notifications to students and parents who completed a FAFSA for the current academic year, but who have not yet submitted a 2020–21 FAFSA form.
The goal of the campaign is to remind customers that the 2020–21 FAFSA form is available and should be completed soon for those going to school between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Students and parents can complete and submit the 2020–21 FAFSA form electronically via fafsa.gov or via the Apple or Android version of the myStudentAid mobile app using the myFAFSA function.
Counselors and others can use the Department’s messages in their own communications to students and parents.
