Important FAFSA News

  • Students are able to submit a FAFSA early. Students are able to file a 2018-19 FAFSA starting October 1, 2017! The earlier submission date is a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
     
  • For the 2018-19 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) report their 2016 income information.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to access the IRS tax return information needed to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and transfer the data directly into their FAFSA from the IRS website.

If you are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, we highly recommend using the tool for several reasons:

  1. It’s the easiest way to provide your tax data.
  2. It’s the best way of ensuring that your FAFSA has accurate tax information.
  3. You won’t need to provide a copy of your or your parents’ tax returns to your college.
