Summary: Distribution of 2008-2009 Renewal FAFSA Reminders

Posted on 01-22-2008

Federal Student Aid would like to alert all schools that we have begun sending 2008-2009 Renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) reminder notifications to students. Notifications will be sent from January 16, 2008 through February 11, 2008.

Students who are renewal-eligible for 2008-2009 and who qualify for reminders by January 15, 2008 will be sent Renewal Reminder notifications. Eligible students who provided e-mail addresses on their 2007-2008 records will receive 2008-2009 Renewal Reminder e-mails. Renewal-eligible students whose records do not have e-mail addresses with valid syntax, or whose Renewal Reminder e-mails are returned as undeliverable, will be mailed 2008-2009 Renewal Reminder letters, provided there is a deliverable mailing address.

Notes:

    • A student may become renewal-eligible for 2008-2009 after January 15, 2008, if he or she initially files a 2007-2008 FAFSA or if a correction is made to his or her 2007-2008 record after January 15 that creates a renewal-eligible record. Such a student is eligible to complete the 2008-2009 renewal application, but will not receive a Renewal Reminder e-mail or letter.
    • We will not send Renewal Reminders to renewal-eligible students who already have a processed 2008-2009 FAFSA by January 15, 2008.

Please see the 2008-2009 Summary of Changes for the Application Processing System Guide for details on the 2008-2009 renewal application process.
