Summary: Availability of the 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA Process Guide

Posted on 09-08-2005

We are pleased to announce the posting of the 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA Process Guide on the U.S. Department of Education's Federal Student Aid Download (FSAdownload) Web site, located at http://fsadownload.ed.gov.

The Department of Education is making several major changes to the renewal application process for the 2006-2007 cycle. The biggest change is that all renewal-eligible applicants will now use the Web to reapply for aid because paper Renewal FAFSAs will no longer be printed and mailed. All renewal-eligible applicants can access Renewal FAFSA on the Web using their PIN to complete, sign, and submit a 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA.

The 2006-2007 Renewal FAFSA Process Guide provides useful information to financial aid administrators about this change and other important enhancements for 2006-2007. A schedule of important dates and samples of the Renewal Reminders that are sent to renewal-eligible students are also provided in the guide.
