Students are able to submit a FAFSA beginning Oct. 1. The earlier submission date is a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1st every year.

Students now use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) reported their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information.

  • 2019-20 FAFSA: Students and parents will report their 2017 income information
