In 2020, the FAFSA Simplification Act was enacted into law as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021. The FAFSA Simplification Act represents a significant overhaul of federal student aid, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, need analysis, and many policies and procedures for schools that participate in the Title IV programs.

The 2024-2025 FAFSA will be available in December 2023. The exact date has not yet been released by the Department of Education.

We will continue to update this webpage as we receive more information from the Department of Education.
