IMPORTANT information regarding your 2017-18 FAFSA: On September 13, 2015, President Obama announced a change in how and when students complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Families will now be able to begin completing the FAFSA on October 1, 2016, rather than January 2017. This change more closely aligns the financial aid application process with the admission application process. In order to accommodate this earlier filing schedule, the FAFSA will collect income information from two years prior to the academic year for which the aid is intended (Prior-Prior Year), rather than the previous year. This chart shows which data elements will likely be affected by the change to prior-prior year income on the 2017-18 FAFSA.
The process of applying for financial aid varies depending on whether you are a prospective or current student. Please carefully review the information on the page that is relevant to you and be aware of upcoming deadlines and specific forms that must be filed.
