Complete the FAFSA


The Department of Education (ED) began a soft launch of the 2024-25 FAFSA on December 31, 2023. During the soft launch applications will be available to students and families, but periodically ED will be pulled down to perform maintenance and address any potential issues. ED projects that the information submitted on the FAFSA should be available to schools by the early February; we hope to begin reviewing applications for the Fall 2024 in mid-March.
