2017-2018 FAFSA Changes
On Sept. 14, 2015, President Obama announced significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process that will impact millions of students. Starting with the 2017–18 application cycle, the following changes will be put in place:
Students will be able to submit a FAFSA earlier. Students will be able to file a 2017–2018 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016, rather than beginning on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
Students will use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017–2018 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–2018 FAFSA, students will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.
The Financial Aid Office will be offering workshops to assist with the application process. For more information click here.
