Financial Aid-Scholarships
FAFSA may be submitted after December 1st 2023. You may apply for a FSA Id anytime. https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa
 


Earlier information:
Students and families will get a reliable understanding of their aid eligibility as early as the fall – the same time many high school students are searching for, applying to, and even selecting colleges.
Simpler applications: More students and families will be able to complete their FAFSAs using information retrieved electronically directly from the IRS reducing the number of applicants who need to estimate income or taxes paid, only to correct their application later.
More students receiving Pell Grants and other aid:
Over the next several years, the simpler FAFSA filing process could encourage hundreds of thousands of additional students to apply for and claim the aid they are eligible for – and enroll in college.
Reduced burden on colleges: In recent years, colleges and universities have spent as many as 3 million total hours each year verifying FAFSA information, including income and other tax return data. These colleges and universities will be able to avoid much of the burden of verifying tax return information when students apply using data retrieved directly from the IRS.
