FAFSA Application for 2014-15

The details… All students planning on returning to MIAD for the 2014-15 academic year are reminded to complete the 2014-15 FAFSA application by April 1st, 2014. The FAFSA is completed on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. MIAD’s Federal School Code is 014203. The application date of April 1st is especially important to students whose legal residence is WI. The State of WI has an application cut-off date to be eligible for the WI Tuition Grant. This date changes from year to year.

I also recommend that you and your parent use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA to import your 2013 federal tax filing information. This process results in accurate information and a quicker response time.

If you have questions or concerns about filing the 2014-15 FAFSA be sure to come by the financial aid office so we can help you..

Learning Resource Center Tip of the Week: PLANNING & CONTROLLING WITH LISTS!

The details… As the momentum of the semester settles into a higher activity level, it is easy to understand why students might get a little overwhelmed. This week’s tip is to use the LIST as a tool to thwart the tendency to try to think about too many things at the same time. Lists are a great tool to break down projects and assignments into manageable parts. By breaking down and listing out each part, you are better able to identify when you have time to do each part before the project/assignment is due. Additionally, because you have everything on a list and a plan when to accomplish each part, you will better be able to focus on ONE THING at a time and control the urge to become overwhelmed!
For additional time management ideas, check out the ORGANIZATION HANDOUTS on the LRC moodle site, or stop in talk with a tutor in the LRC.
