It never hurts to get a reminder about an upcoming deadline.

When it comes to institutional deadlines for Title IV programs, most financial aid professionals are familiar with reporting and record submission schedules.

Sometimes things do change, and it's always good to verify the deadlines. In a June 24 Federal Register, the Department announced the 2021-22 award year deadline dates for reports and other records associated with the FAFSA and federal financial aid programs.

In the Announcement, the Secretary of Education announced deadline dates for the receipt of documents and other information from applicants and institutions.

The Announcement contains two tables:

  • Table A: 2021-22 award year deadline dates by which a student must submit the FAFSA, by which the institution must receive the student's ISIR or SAR, and by which the institutions must submit verification outcomes for certain students.
  • Table B: 2021-22 award year deadline dates by which an institution must submit disbursement information for the Pell Grant, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant, Direct Loan and TEACH Grant Programs.

The notice also reminds institutions about enrollment reporting requirements and deadlines.
