Get Ready for the 2024-2025 FAFSA!

Get excited! The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for the 2024-2025 academic year will be available to complete by December 31, 2023.

In preparation for the release of the FAFSA, consider the following:

  • Determine who is a contributor to your FAFSA and gather the information needed so you can invite them to complete and sign their section of the FAFSA, which includes the following:
    • Legal name* (from their Social Security Card);
    • Date of birth*;
    • Social Security Number (SSN*) if they have one;
    • Mailing address** if they don’t have an SSN; and
    • Email address
  • If your contributor(s) does not have an FSA ID, they should create their account now. Contributors who do not have a Social Security Number will be able to establish an FSA ID by the time the FAFSA launches.
  • Gather the information required to complete the FAFSA, which includes 2022 federal tax information for you and your Contributor(s).

Don’t delay and start preparing for the release for 2024-2025 FAFSA today!
