That's the advice of Robert Long, coordina- tor of the West Virginia Higher Edu- cation Grant Program. "The West Virginia Financial, Aid Form (FAF) should be filed as early as possible but not later than Febru- ary 22 to be considered on time for the state grant and for most colleges in West Virginia," explained Mr Long. "Forms received by the New Jersey-based College. Scholarship Service after March 1, are consid- ered late and will be placed in a lower priority group, thus reducing state grant possibilities," he added. According to Mr Long, students who file after the march 1 deadline can still receive financial aid, but are more likely to receive a great~,r por- tion of loans than they would have if deadlines were met. Families who will not submit income tax returns until April t5 are encouraged to use estimates of 1989 income instead of waiting to file the FAF until taxes are completed. State grant program records indi- cate that 5400 students received grants of $350 to $1640 from the West Virginia Grant Program in the 1989-90 academic year. All of the recipients were on-time fi~ers. The West Virginia Financial Aid Form may be obtained from the state grant program, guidance of- rices, and colleges throughout the state. It is the application for aid from federal, state, and college sources. For more information about how to apply for financial aid, stu- dents are encouraged to call their nearest college or University or the West Virginia Higher Education Grant Program, P. O.
