|State Offering Free Virtual FAFSA Filing Help for Students, Families on April 4
April 15 deadline to file for student financial aid eligibility swiftly approaching
(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indiana Commission for Higher Education is encouraging all students to file the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before the approaching April 15, 2020 deadline. As part of the state’s annual Cash for College campaign, the Commission is joining with INvestED Indiana to host a virtual FAFSA Frenzy event on Saturday, April 4.
The annual FAFSA Frenzy is typically held in person, however, the event will be held virtually to maintain the health and safety of Hoosiers during the COVID-19 outbreak and to follow Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb’s executive orders surrounding staying at home and social distancing.
Students and families can seek assistance through the Commission’s Learn More Indiana social media platforms, which will be manned by Commission staff members during the live event. Staff will be answering common FAFSA questions and posting videos about the FAFSA. Follow along on social media with the #FAFSAFrenzyIN hashtag.
WHAT: Indiana FAFSA Frenzy Virtual Event
By text and phone: To best serve the state, the Commission has split the state into eight regions. A full list of counties and associated numbers is available at www.learnmoreindiana.org. Reach INvestED any time at (317) 715-9007 for free assistance with the FAFSA.
¿Necesitas ayuda en español? Llame al 317-232-1072 o 317-617-0318.
Note: Please note, do not share your Social Security Number or other private information over social media. Please be patient during the event. If you cannot get ahold of someone by phone, leave a voicemail and they will return your call when they are available.
Students and families can contact the Commission’s Outreach staff and the INvestED team at any time, even after the virtual event concludes.
Assistance with filing the FAFSA is open to anyone – regardless of age – planning to attend or thinking of attending college or some form of postsecondary education in the fall. Filing the FAFSA is an important step in the postsecondary enrollment process for all Hoosier students and families – despite socioeconomic status. Having a current FAFSA on file ensures college is as affordable as possible and opens up opportunities for federal, state and institutional financial aid.

A Note from Republic Services in regards to trash/recycling:
With the coronavirus posing a threat to communities across the country, I wanted to reach out to ensure that you are aware of the steps Republic Services is taking to keep our employees and customers safe and healthy during this uncertain time.
Safety is Republic’s number one priority. We pride ourselves on crisis preparedness and business continuity planning and execution. It’s our objective to keep people safe and healthy while continuing to provide superior service and support to our customers.
Republic Services is taking the coronavirus seriously. We are closely monitoring CDC, FEMA and local, state and federal guidance. In addition, we’ve increased our janitorial services in key markets and we’re communicating often with our employees to reinforce the importance of disinfecting the workplace and practicing frequent handwashing and sanitization.
We are confident in our preparations and ability to handle the situation should our employees or operations be impacted by the virus, and as a valued partner, it is our commitment to keep you informed. As the situation evolves, it’s important that we stay connected and aligned, so that Republic can best serve you and your residents.
Challenges and impacts – Resi volume impacts expected to increase 30% resulting in additional hours for drivers & trucks, inefficiencies on routes, and disposal costs
However, to offset those costs, we have identified three things we need your help:
- Limit to “Cart Contents Only”
- Permission to landfill recyclables, only if operationally necessary.
- Suspension of Bulk Collection Pre-paid Stickers
All are temporary – only until the pandemic is over. If there’s anything we can do to help, please let us know.
We’re in this together.
