Early FAFSA - Coming October 1, 2016

Changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2017-2018 academic year. The FAFSA will be available to students and their families three months earlier than in the past – on October 1 instead of January 1. 

Families will be able to complete the FAFSA, using information from TWO years prior.  Families will no longer have to estimate their income information and then update it later once taxes are filed. Additionally, most families will be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when they complete the FAFSA.
