Due to changes to the FAFSA because of FAFSA Simplification, the release of the 2024-25 FAFSA will be delayed. While the FAFSA is typically released on October 1, this year the FAFSA will not be released until December for the 2024-25 school year. The Department of Education has not provided an exact date yet; however, they are required to release the FAFSA by January 1. Plan to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after it is released.
Because of the delay in the release of the FAFSA, financial aid offers for both admitted and returning students will be available later than normal. These delays should be a one-time occurrence with the October 1 release of the FAFSA resuming for the 2025-26 year.
Check out our FAFSA Simplification page for more information on the changes. We will update this page as more information becomes available.
