2023-24 FAFSA

Students can now access the new 2023-24 FAFSA by visiting StudentAid.gov. The FAFSA should always be completed as soon as possible after Oct. 1, as some types of federal aid are awarded to early applicants.. It’s best to gather all necessary materials before starting the FAFSA. Since the 2023-24 FAFSA allows applicants to use 2021 tax information, families can use their 2021 federal income tax return to complete the application. Families may also choose to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows them to transfer their tax information directly into the FAFSA application.

To complete and submit the FAFSA online, students and one of their parents/guardians will each need to create an FSA ID (Federal Student Aid ID) at StudentAid.gov. This username/password serves as an electronic signature on the FAFSA and certain student loan applications, and allows them to access other federal student aid websites. It’s beneficial for families to create their FSA IDs before starting the FAFSA to speed up the application process. Visit UCanGo2.org to download an FSA ID Worksheet (in English and Spanish) to keep track of your information.

For more information and FAFSA resources, including educational tools and tutorial videos in English and Spanish, visit StartWithFAFSA.org.
