2009-2010 FAFSA Renewal Reminder

The Department of Education will soon be sending information about filing your 2009-2010 Renewal FAFSA. A Renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is designed for students who applied for aid the previous year. Using the Renewal FAFSA application streamlines the application process because you do not have to enter basic information since it is uploaded from the previous year's database.

To ensure that you will be able to take advantage of the Renewal FAFSA for next year, please update your addresses and or email addresses on your current years FAFSA application so that the Department of Education's Renewal Reminders are sent to the correct address.

Students can update their contact information by visiting the FAFSA on the Web site at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Contact information can be viewed via the "Make Corrections" section of the site.

In order to complete your FAFSA online, you must have a PIN number. If you do not remember your PIN number, you may access the following website: www.pin.ed.gov

Financial Aid Deadlines

Students who would like to receive financial aid for the Fall term only must submit all documentation to complete their file by the following dates:

Law & MPA Students: December 5, 2008

Business Students: December 6 , 2008

If you are unsure whether your file is complete please contact our office at 312-906-5180 or finaid@kentlaw.edu.

Fall Financial Aid Reminder

If you need financial aid for the fall term, and you have not completed your 2008-2009 FAFSA, please complete it as soon as possible. The financial aid process can take 4-6 weeks from start to finish. The process can take even longer if there are complications or if Department of Education selects your file for some form of verification.

Once you receive your financial aid award and you want to receive financial aid for the 2008-2009 academic year you must use your myIIT account to accept your loans. Please be aware that if you do not accept your loans our office will not process your loans which can delay the receipt of your refund check as welll.

If you received a Federal Stafford or Graduate Plus loan last year and you do not want to change lenders you do not need to complete a new master promissory note. Once you accept your loans for 2008-2009 our office will process your aid using the promissory note on file from last year.

REFUND CHECKS

Refund checks are generated by the Bursar's Office and are available to be picked up at their office (Room 290) approximately 5-7 business days after a credit has resulted in a student's account.

The Bursar's Office will send the student an email when a refund check is available.

Free Credit Report

Did you know that you are now able to receive a free credit report once every 12 months? We encourage students to review their credit reports annually to check for inaccuracies and identify any suspicious activity.

To receive your free credit report, please visit the following link: http://www.annualcreditreport.com. This central site allows you to request a free credit file disclosure, commonly called a credit report, once every 12 months from each of the nationwide consumer credit reporting companies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.

Please be aware that other sites may advertise free credit reports, but this is the only site that is sponsored by the federal government and the three nationwide credit reporting agencies. Other sites may charge fees.
