The U.S. Department of Education has implemented a new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) system and process for 2024. Please be aware that you may encounter challenges when filling out your FAFSA for the 2024-25 academic year that begins with the 2024 Fall Term. 

Learn more about the new FAFSA process, what to expect, and how to stay informed.

The  2023-2024 FAFSA is currently available. The FAFSA for 2023-2024 will use information from the 2021 tax year. The 2023-2024 FAFSA will be used for the Fall 2023, Spring 2024, and Summer 2024 terms. 

Complete Your FAFSA

The 2024-25 FAFSA is now available. Learn more about the 2024-2025 FAFSA changes.
