Happy early #NationalPuppyDay! Don’t let FAFSA deadlines drag you down. Make sure you fill it out on time: fafsa.gov

If you have had an address change, make sure that EOU has your new mailing address.  We may need to request additional information from you to complete your financial aid application.  Make sure that you check your mail and email.  Financial aid awards are not final until we have received all requested information and done a final file review.

April 15: File your tax return.
File your tax return.

“If the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date is delayed until the next business day. Your return is considered filed on time if the envelope is properly addressed, postmarked, and deposited in the mail by the due date.

“If you can’t file by the due date of your return, you should request an extension of time to file. To receive an automatic 6-month extension of time to file your return, you must file Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (PDF) by the due date of your return. An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay. You may be subject to a late payment penalty on any tax not paid by the original due date of your return.”

You can check WEBSTER to see if your aid has disbursed to your student account.  The Student Accounts Office sends out checks!  Once aid has disbursed, please contact the Student Accounts Office at 541-962-3590.
