CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University students are urged to file their Free Application for Federal Student Aid as soon as possible after Jan. 1, 2016.


Chris Mapes, director of financial aid, said, “If you are considering college or will be returning to college for the 2016-17 school year, file your FAFSA on Jan. 1 or as soon as possible afterward.”


She said filing early will help determine your eligibility for awards such as federal work study, state grants and federal student loans.


Mapes said it is okay to use your 2014 tax returns as an estimate and make corrections at a later date.


She said the Campbellsville University Office of Financial Aid staff members would be happy to help you file your FAFSA if you need assistance even if you haven’t made a decision on where you will be attending college.


For more information, call (270) 789-5013.
