Subject: 2019–20 FAFSA Email Campaign Launch

On October 29, 2018 we will begin sending emails to 2018­–19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) filers ­­­(and parents of dependent 2018–19 FAFSA filers) who have not yet submitted a 2019–20 FAFSA form.  The goals of the email campaign are to make customers aware that the 2019–20 FAFSA form is available and to encourage them to complete the form early. Students and parents can now complete and submit the 2019–20 FAFSA form electronically via fafsa.gov or via the myStudentAid mobile app. One of the new features of the 2019–20 myStudentAid mobile app is the ability for students to complete and submit a 2019–20 renewal FAFSA form using the myFAFSA function. More information about the launch of the 2019–20 myStudentAid mobile app can be found in an electronic announcement dated October 2, 2018

Eligible students and parents who have a valid email address in the Central Processing System will receive an email at some point between now and early December. In January, students who are renewal eligible but still have not submitted a 2019–20 FAFSA form will receive an email reminder. Students and parents may receive different messages based on certain factors. The specific email text is attached to this notice for your reference.

Feel free to use language from the attached email messages in your own communications.
