The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly referred to as the FAFSA, is the key to determining whether you are eligible for federal, state, and institutional financial aid such as grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. You must complete a new FAFSA for each year.

Complete the FAFSA

FAFSA Priority Date


Each year March 10th is the FAFSA priority-filing date for the state of Indiana and Ball State financial aid. Even if you think you may not qualify for grants, the information you provide on the FAFSA often helps determine your eligibility for other aid.

If you are seeking financial aid, March 10 is the key date to remember for financial assistance.
