New Changes for the 2024-2025 FAFSA
Several changes to the FAFSA will go into effect with the upcoming aid year. The FAFSA will be available in December 2023. Here is what you need to know about the FAFSA updates.
For most students there will be less than half of the questions than on prior FAFSAs. A direct data share from the IRS to the FAFSA has been implemented to simplify the student and parent experience.
A contributor is anyone who is required to provide information and consent on the FAFSA. This includes the student and depending on the student’s situation, may also include a parent, parent’s spouse, or student’s spouse.
StudentAid.gov Account requirement
All contributors must have their own StudentAid.gov Account to complete their section of the FAFSA. If you have not already, create your account now.
The housing question will not be displayed on the FAFSA and this is how our office will determine your cost of attendance.
