Make the most of your winter break by completing your FAFSA. Yes, for the first time ever, you can complete your FAFSA before you file your taxes. The updated application is based on your 2015 tax return. So, make good use of your break by submitting your FAFSA before the spring semester begins!
The 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was made available on October 1, 2016 -- three months earlier than ever before. In addition to making the form available early, you no longer need to wait to complete your current year taxes. The form now requires the use of prior, prior year tax returns. That means, you will use 2015 income tax return data to complete your 2017-18 FAFSA.
