FAFSA FAQs

Free Application for Federal Student Aid

To apply for federal financial aid, and to apply for many state student aid programs, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Electronic versions of the FAFSA make applying for financial aid faster and easier than ever. To apply for 2017 – 2018 financial aid, you should complete the 2017 – 2018 FAFSA prior to April 20, 2017, to ensure priority handling of your application.

The 2017-2018 academic year includes:
  • Fall 2017
  • Spring 2018
  • Summer 2018

If you plan to enroll in any of these terms, you must complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA.

 Note: If you are enrolling for Summer 2018, you will need to complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA prior to June 30, 2018.
