Big changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for the upcoming 2024-2025 aid year! Student Financial Aid will update this page as information is made available.
Why is it Changing?
On Dec. 27, 2020, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act. The law includes provisions that amend the Fostering Undergraduate Talent by Unlocking Resources for Education (FUTURE) Act and includes the FAFSA Simplification Act—a sweeping redesign of the processes and systems used to award federal student aid. Specifically, the law makes it easier for students and families to complete and submit the FAFSA form and expands access to federal student aid.
What does this mean for you?
The 2024-2025 FAFSA process is going to be different from previous years. We will continue to keep you informed.
