Prepare for the 2018-2019 School Year!

The 2018-2019 FAFSA is now available for filing.  Completing your FAFSA early will help to ensure that you receive all of the aid that you are eligible for and helps to ensure that you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state aid.The deadline for Maryland State Aid is March 1st, 2018.

You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm.

To file a FAFSA you will need to visit:  https://fafsa.ed.gov . Be sure to use Capitol Technology University’s school code: 001436 to ensure that we receive your application.

You can create or obtain your FSA ID here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid

Filing your FAFSA is easier if you have gathered everything you need before you get started. If you are a dependent student you will need the following information for yourself, as well as your parents. If you are married you will need this information for your spouse also.

  • Social Security Number (or Alien Registration Number if you are not a US citizen)
  • Student’s driver’s license (if applicable)
  • 2016 Federal tax returns
  • Bank statements, records of investments, and records of untaxed income
  • An FSA ID to electronically sign the form (students and parents will each need their own FSA ID)

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) can make obtaining accurate tax information easier. The tool is expected to be reinstated for the 2018-2019 FAFSA. However, there are some stipulations on who is eligible to use the DRT, so it’s still a good idea to have the information list above on hand.

SALLIE MAE LAUNCHES FREE SCHOLARSHIP SEARCH TOOL FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS

 Company’s Graduate School Scholarship Search Home to More than 850,000 Scholarships Exclusively for Graduate Students, Worth More than $1 Billion

 

Sallie Mae, the nation’s saving, planning, and paying for college company, today launched the new go-to destination for graduate school scholarships. Sallie Mae’s free Graduate School Scholarship Search is now available to current and prospective graduate school and professional students and is home to more than 850,000 graduate school scholarships worth more than $1 billion.

 

Getting started is easy; students register free of charge, fill out a profile that can be updated at any time, and start searching. The tool responds with matches that identify relevant scholarships and their award amounts, application requirements, and deadlines. In addition, Graduate School Scholarship Search automatically will send updates when it identifies new matches.

 

Available scholarships and fellowships run the gamut of graduate school disciplines, including business, law, medical, health care and nursing, engineering, and education, and range from a few thousand to tens of thousands of dollars. Those who register for Sallie Mae’s Graduate School Scholarship Search are also automatically registered for the Sallie Mae $1,000 Sweepstakes, which awards $1,000 each month to a winner selected at random. For official sweepstakes rules, visit Sallie Mae $1,000 Sweepstakes. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited.

 

The Graduate School Scholarship Search tool is especially relevant given recent research from Sallie Mae and Ipsos on how students are paying for graduate school. According to “How America Pays for Graduate School,” two-thirds of grad students (64 percent) believe an advanced degree is the new minimum standard level of education for any professional occupation, and nearly all (95 percent) say an advanced degree is necessary to enter, advance, accelerate, or remain competitive in their chosen career.

 

“Today’s students see graduate school as a critical component to a successful career, and although most have a plan to pay for it, many are unaware of the availability of scholarships and where to find them,” said Martha Holler, senior vice president, Sallie Mae. “Our free and easy-to-use Graduate School Scholarship Search is the one-stop shop for graduate school scholarships that simplifies and automates the search for free money for grad school.”

 

To register for and access Sallie Mae’s Graduate School Scholarship Search and for additional information about saving, planning, and paying for graduate school, visit SallieMae.com.

Upcoming Program Changes for the Howard P. Rawlings Educational Assistance (EA) Grant and Howard P. Rawlings Guaranteed Access (GA) Grant grant programs

Please be advised that beginning with the 2018-19 academic year there will be MAJOR changes to the RENEWAL process for the Educational Assistance (EA) Grant and Guaranteed Access (GA) Grant programs due to the enactment of the College Affordability Act of 2016.

The changes will consist of recipients of the EA or GA awards must successfully complete at least 30 credits by the end of the second academic year of enrollment and each academic year thereafter. This means that students who are eligible for either the EA or GA grant must complete at least 30 credits per academic year, beginning in their sophomore year and thereafter, in order to receive full eligibility.

While these provisions will not become effective until the 2018-2019 academic year, it is imperative that students plan accordingly now as the number of credits they will earn in the 2017-2018 year may affect their award eligibility for the 2018-2019 award year.  

Please note that for more information regarding the program changes for the EA and GA grant, students may visit: http://mhec.maryland.gov/preparing/Pages/FinancialAid/EEAProgramChanges.aspx or email: osfamail.mhec@maryland.gov

2018-2019 FAFSA is available to complete!

The 2018-2019 FAFSA became available for filing on after October 1, 2017. Completing your FAFSA early will help to ensure that you receive all of the aid that you are eligible for. Filing early also helps to ensure that you don’t miss FAFSA deadlines for state aid. You can find state FAFSA deadlines at https://fafsa.ed.gov/deadlines.htm.

To file a FAFSA you will need to visit:  https://fafsa.ed.gov . Be sure to use Capitol Technology University’s school code: 001436 to ensure that we receive your application.

You can create or obtain your FSA ID here: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa/filling-out/fsaid

Filing your FAFSA is easier if you have gathered everything you need before you get started. If you are a dependent student you will need the following information for yourself, as well as your parents. If you are married you will need this information for your spouse also.

  • Social Security Number (or Alien Registration Number if you are not a US citizen)
  • Student’s driver’s license (if applicable)
  • 2016 Federal tax returns
  • Bank statements, records of investments, and records of untaxed income
  • An FSA ID to electronically sign the form (students and parents will each need their own FSA ID)

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) can make obtaining accurate tax information easier. The tool is expected to be reinstated for the 2018-2019 FAFSA. However, there are some stipulations on who is eligible to use the DRT, so it’s still a good idea to have the information list above on hand.
