The new 2024–25 FAFSA® Form Will Be Available in December 2023
For students who plan to attend college or career/trade school between July 1, 2024, and June 30, 2025, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) processes and system will be getting big updates. This includes a new and improved FAFSA experience for students and families. As a result, the updated FAFSA form will be available in December 2023. We’ll reach out to you when the form is available for you to complete and submit.
Stay informed about changes by opting into SMS message alerts, and take steps now to help you prepare to submit your form. Remember, your child needs to complete a FAFSA form every year they are enrolled in school to receive federal student aid.
