May 31, 2023 - Federal Student Aid (FSA) is changing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2024-25 academic year. The start date for the 2024-25 FAFSA will be delayed due to the complexity of simplifying the FAFSA. The 2024-25 FAFSA will become available in December 2023 instead of October 1, 2023. The application will be pared down to just 36 questions instead of 108. For more information, please visit Federal Student Aid.
