2016-17 School Year

  Class of 2016:  Still time to file Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.ed.gov/

                      Class of 2017:  NEW THIS FALL, next year's seniors need to file their FAFSA for the 2017/18 academic year in OCTOBER. But PLEASE Wait until Oct. 1 to make sure you are filing for the correct year, then file at fafsa.gov. The 2017/18 form opens Oct. 1, 2016.

  • Students will be able to file for financial aid beginning Oct. 1—three months earlier than before
  • Students and their families will use 2015 tax information (Parents already have filed by April 15, 2015).
  • Applications should be submitted in October to meet all deadlines
  • Here is the link: fafsa.gov 

The new October timeframe is a permanent change to the process, allowing students to file for financial aid at the same time they are completing college applications for both state and private universities and colleges.
