FAFSA
® Changes for 2017–18

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 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 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. (There is NO CHANGE to the 2016–17 schedule. The FAFSA became available January 1 as in previous years.)
  • Students will use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.

College Admissions Assistance 
It has been brought to my attention, students are receiving information from companies or individuals to sell you something you may not need, such as a book
with your name in it, financial aid assistance, scholarship opportunities, scholarship searches, or opportunities for schooling and career training beyond high school. Please review this information carefully before signing up for anything.  These programs can be costly and the information is available for free.  Please contact me if you have any questions.
