Now that families may use prior-prior year financial information – in this case 2016 tax returns – the date to complete and submit the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) is NOT January 1, 2018 but October 1, 2017.

The very first step, Seniors, is for you to create an FSA ID: https://fafsa.ed.gov/FAFSA/app/fafsa?locale=en_US

Don’t wait until October 1 to do that step. Do it today!

Remember: Even if you don’t think you’ll qualify for need-based aid, for colleges to offer you merit-based aid, they want to know you are not eligible for Federal aid.
