The 2017-2018 FASFA is Now Available!

In an effort to simplify the financial aid application process, the Department of Education will make the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) available on Oct. 1, 2016.  Renew your FAFSA for the upcoming year at

Applicants will use tax information from income earned two years earlier, instead of last year's income. The change eliminates the guesswork of estimating your tax information when you complete your FAFSA prior to completing your taxes. 

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which eliminates the need for you to have your tax documents on hand by electronically transferring your tax return information from the IRS to your FAFSA, will also be available to most applicants.
