How the FAFSA Simplification Act Affects You

Big changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for the 2024-2025 aid year!

Historically, the FAFSA has been available beginning October 1st each year. However, because of significant changes to the application and the rebuild of the FAFSA processing system, the 2024-25 FAFSA will not be available until December 31, 2023. 

Check out the Federal Student Aid Estimator before the new FAFSA® form is available. It can help you understand your potential options for paying for college by providing you an estimate of how much federal student aid you may be eligible for. This is an estimate tool and does not guarantee you will be eligible for these funds. Eligibility depends on the completion of the 2024-2025 FAFSA.
