2017-18 FAFSA Changes


The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is changing this year! 2016-17 High School Seniors will need to complete the FAFSA starting October 1st instead of January 1st. Students AND parents need to create a FSA ID in order to apply for financial aid. Remember, completing the FAFSA is free and the earlier you complete it the more likely you will receive financial aid if eligible. This change affects current college students as well who will be re-applying for financial aid withe FAFSA. Below are several resources to help you complete your 2017-18 FAFSA in a timely manner.
