File FAFSA Early

Announcing BIG changes for the 2017-2018
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process

  • Students can now file the 2017-2018 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016, rather than waiting until January 1, 2017. This will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit the FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
  • Students/parents will use 2015 income tax information rather than estimating their 2016 income information. Students/parents should use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows for automatic transfer of tax return data into the FAFSA from the IRS web site.
  • Priority funding deadline is March 1, however some aid funds will be awarded on a first come-first served basis.
