How do the new changes to the FAFSA impact me?

There are two big changes for the 2017-18 school year and beyond:

  • Report older income and tax info
    You’ll need to submit info from an earlier tax year. To apply for financial aid for the 2017-18 school year, you’d use the info on your 2015 tax return (which you filed in 2016).
  • Submit your FAFSA earlier
    The filing date now begins October 1 every year.

If you filed your 2015 taxes with us, we’ve created a FAFSA Fact Sheet with the tax info you’ll need to fill out your forms.
