File FAFSA by March 1st for Maximum Financial Aid Eligibility
For maximum financial aid eligibility, the recommended deadline for filing the 2012-2013 Free Application for Student Financial Aid (FAFSA) is March 1st.
Regulations have changed beginning with the 2012-2013 aid year. You are strongly encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval to access your 2011 tax information. Otherwise, it may be necessary for you to request a tax transcript from the IRS to complete the verification process. This will cause delays.
Contact the Financial Aid Office, check-out our website and like us on Facebook for additional information, helpful hints and assistance.
Reminder: The Scholar Dollar Application Deadline is also March 1. This one application can be used to apply for all NMSU scholarships and several NMSU-A scholarships.
