Time flies and, before we know it, deadlines are upon us. Student loans can be a challenge when it comes to filing on time. You might be dealing with Federal, State and College deadlines and they can be vastly different.
Federal deadlines for the 2015/2016 are midnight Central Time, June 30, 2015 for online applications. Applications with updates or corrections must be finalized and submitted by midnight Central Time, September 19, 2015
Many states have a much earlier submission deadline. For instance, the majority of financial aid programs in California must be postmarked by March 2, 2015 for submission.
