Friday, January 25 2013

MOSCOW, Idaho – The University of Idaho Financial Aid Office is offering students and parents help with completing the FAFSA financial aid application for 2013-14.

Expert staff will be available to assist with the completion of the FAFSA and answer questions about the process on Tuesday, Jan. 29 and Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 4-7 p.m. both nights. The FAFSA Help Days will be held in the Financial Aid Office located in the University of Idaho Student Union Building, 709 Deakin St. in Moscow.

The FAFSA is a federal application used to establish eligibility for financial aid at most institutions across the country. Filing the FAFSA can assist students in finding financial resources to help pay for college.

Students and parents who plan to attend are encouraged to bring their social security numbers, an estimate of their 2012 income, their 2012 W-2 forms if available, their federal PIN number if they have one already and estimates of their current assets.

Many colleges and universities have early deadlines for filing the FAFSA. Students and parents are encouraged to complete the application as soon as possible.

Questions concerning the FAFSA Help Days can be addressed to the U-Idaho Financial Aid Office at 208-885-6312 or finaid@uidaho.edu.
