New Deadlines for the 2017-18 Academic Year
You’ll be able to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as early as October 1, 2016 for the 2017-18 school year, and you’ll use tax information from 2015.
What You Need to Apply for Aid
Before completing the FAFSA, students and parents will need to:
- review all of the deadline changes for the 2017-18 academic year
- create an FSA ID (the student and parent should each have a unique FSA ID)
