Subject: Distribution of 2010-2011 Renewal FAFSA Reminders Begins January 15, 2010

As we first informed you in a November 4, 2009 Electronic Announcement, we will begin sending 2010-2011 Renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Reminder notifications to students on January 15, 2010. The distribution will continue through February 15, 2010.

Students who are renewal-eligible for 2010-2011 and who qualify for reminders by January 11, 2010 will be sent Renewal Reminder notifications. Eligible students who provided e-mail addresses on their 2009-2010 records will receive 2010-2011 Renewal Reminder e-mails. Renewal-eligible students whose records do not have valid e-mail addresses, or whose Renewal Reminder e-mails are returned as undeliverable, will be mailed 2010-2011 Renewal Reminder letters, provided there is a deliverable mailing address.

Please note the following additional information:

  • A student may become renewal-eligible for 2010-2011 after January 11, 2010, if he or she initially files a 2009-2010 FAFSA or if a correction is made to his or her 2009-2010 record after January 11, 2010 that creates a renewal-eligible record. This student is eligible to complete the 2010-2011 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 2010-2011 FAFSA by January 11, 2010.
