FAFSA Information


The Department of Education has announced that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will switch from prior-year to prior-prior-year income and tax data. The change will take effect with the 2017-2018 FAFSA. Instead of waiting until you and/or your parents have completed your tax returns for the previous year, you will be able to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or the FAFSA, using information from two years prior.
