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

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.
