Potential Rangers reminded about FAFSA
The Financial Aid Office at Northwest Mississippi Community College wants to remind students who are planning to attend college in either the fall of 2011 or the spring of 2012 that they need to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and include the school code of the college they plan to attend. Northwest’s school code is 002427.
The first step is for the student to gather his or her parents’ 2010 tax returns and go to the FAFSA website at www.fafsa.gov. Both the student’s tax return and the parents’ tax returns will be needed for dependent students (generally under 24 and unmarried). The student’s tax return is all that is needed if the student is considered independent (generally 24 and older or married).
