The 2017–2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid became available on October 1. Don’t miss out on any financial aid. Complete it as soon as possible.

You will now use the tax information you have already completed and will no longer have to update your FAFSA when your latest information is ready. See this chart to determine which tax forms to use with your 2017–2018 FAFSA.

To make this process easier and faster, utilize the FAFSA Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to automatically transfer income information to your FAFSA. Visit the resource section on our website to find a collection of FAFSA and other resources such as updates, videos, etc.

If you have any questions, contact us at or 312.567.7219. As a reminder, the Office of Financial Aid hosts walk-in hours from noon–4p.m. every weekday.
