[June 1, 2022 | MENA, Ark.] High school seniors or prospective college students seeking to receive any federal or state financial aid must annually complete a 2022-2023 FAFSA form to determine eligibility.
UARM’s Director of Financial Aid Mary Standerfer emphasized the importance of completing these forms each year. “Just because you may have received a Pell grant this year does not mean that you will not have to reapply,” Standerfer explained.
She also added that in applying now, applicants will be using 2020 tax information; however, knowing that 2020 has adversely affected many families’ income levels and Standerfer stressed that students can request a Reconsideration of Income. The Office of Financial Aid can review student and/or parents’ income to see if the difference between the 2020 and current year would make a difference in student eligibility.
There is still time to apply for Arkansas Academic Challenge, Arkansas Workforce, and ARFuture. The deadline to apply is July 1. Apply online at: https://sams.adhe.edu/
