The initial soft launch of the 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has concluded and the form is now available at all times excluding planned maintenance. While the FAFSA is now fully open, there are a few items to note:
- After the FAFSA is submitted, the ability to make corrections will be unavailable until the form is processed which is not planned to occur until mid-March.
- The Department of Education will not begin sending FAFSA data to colleges until mid-March.
- There will be a delay in the college’s ability to download FAFSA data while we wait for our software vendor to update our system. Once we are able to download FAFSAs to our system, students will receive an email notification that we have received it.
