Saylor Reminds College Students Deadline for Filing FAFSA is May 1

Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York) today reminded students seeking state higher education assistance grants for the 2010-11 academic year that the application filing deadline for the need-based Pennsylvania State Grant is May 1. 

Need-based Pennsylvania State Grants are provided to qualified Pennsylvania residents through the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) and do not have to be repaid.  Students must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered.    

Individuals with Internet access may file their FAFSA electronically at or at  Completing the FAFSA online reduces errors and speeds up the processing time. 

The PHEAA website offers services to manage student accounts successfully and obtain information about Pennsylvania State Grants or special programs that would be relevant to secondary education students including account summaries, free online applications, online payment options, and additional forms of financial assistance such as work-study programs, special grants or scholarships and loan forgiveness programs for those who qualify.
