It's time to file your 2017-2018 FAFSA application!!

Students can now file their 2017-18 FAFSA three months earlier starting October 1, 2016.  When completing the application students and parents will use their 2015 income tax which is the same income that was used for the 2016-2017 FAFSA.  This change allows students to file the FAFSA earlier and have the financial aid processed well before the student receives a bill.  Both student and parent (if applicable) will use an FSA ID to electronically sign the FAFSA application.  The FSA ID can be created on the FAFSA website.
