LOSFA extends hours for special financial aid call-in night
The Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) will conduct its fifth annual "Financial Aid Call-In Night" on Monday, Feb. 20, from 6-9 p.m.
During these special nighttime hours, callers may contact LOSFA with questions about the Tuition Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS), Louisiana-guaranteed federal student loans, other federal student aid programs, and the Student Tuition Assistance and Revenue Trust (START) program -- Louisiana's 529 college savings plan.
LOSFA's customer service representatives will also provide on-the-spot advice and assistance for completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid -- also known as the FAFSA -- which is the convenient single application for state and federal aid programs.
Callers from outside the Baton Rouge area may use the toll-free number at (800) 259-5626, Ext. 1012. Callers from inside the Baton Rouge area may use the local number at (225) 922-1012.
LOSFA's normal call-in hours for student financial aid information are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The annual "Financial Aid Call-In Night" is designed to assist callers who are unable to call during regular business hours.
