Complete The FAFSA Starting October 1!
Last updated March 1, 2021
Are you planning to go to college in the Fall? Guess what, you can start filling out a FAFSA for next school year on October 1st! You don’t have to wait to see how much money your parents made in the current year. You will use prior-prior year tax information.
At Get Schooled, we HIGHLY recommend getting that FAFSA done sooner than later. Why?
IT’S EASIER NOW!
You can electronically import your parent's tax information into the FAFSA application, making the FAFSA much easier to complete.
YOU’LL KNOW MORE SOONER!
By applying early, you will know sooner how much federal aid you qualify for and are being offered.
GET THAT MONEY!
While some state grant deadlines have not changed, some financial aid funds, such as work-study, are limited and awarded on a first-come basis. Applying early puts them in the best position to be considered for all available sources of funding.
