January 8, 2013 is the deadline for updating 2012-2013 SARs/ISIRs with students’ current e-mail addresses in order for students to receive the Renewal FAFSA reminder for 2013-2014.

ED reminds schools that students’ SARs/ISIRs must be updated by January 8, 2013 in order to be sent the Renewal FAFSA for the coming school year.  Students who meet the FAFSA renewal eligibility requirements will be sent a reminder by e-mail between January 13, 2013 and February 10, 2013.  It is important to note that for the 2013-2014 processing year, ED will not send paper renewal reminders to reapply for Federal Student Aid (i.e., complete the Renewal FAFSA).

See the November 1, 2012 Electronic Announcement on IFAP for more information.
