FAFSA Deadline Extended as Officials See a Drop in 2021 Applications

The original deadline for FAFSA forms was on April 15, but will now be processed on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The Indiana Commission for Higher Education has extended deadlines for 2021-2022 applications.

This is the form prospective college students fill out to qualify for state and federal financial aid.

The extension comes after only roughly 44% of the state's soon-to-be high school graduates submitted a "FAFSA" form by the original April 15 deadline.

A new deadline has not been set, but those close to the program say financial aid will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
