What is FAFSA?

Why should I complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid?


You need to complete the FAFSA every year that you want to be considered for financial aid.

The 2023-24 FAFSA is used for the spring 2024 and summer 2024 semesters. For the 2023-24 FAFSA, you will use your 2021 income information on the application.

The 2024-25 FAFSA, will be used for the fall 2024, spring 2025 and summer 2025 semesters. For the 2024-25 FAFSA, you will use your 2022 income information on the application.

If you plan to attend in both the spring/summer semesters and the fall 2024 semester, you should complete both the 2023-24 and 2024-25 FAFSA form here:  FAFSA® Application | Federal Student Aid

Great advice from Federal Student Aid can be found here:  6 Things Students Need Before They Fill Out the 2024–25 FAFSA® Form – Federal Student Aid


To avoid delays, create your account (FSA ID) at least 2-3 days prior to completing the FAFSA form.  You can create your FSA ID here:  Create Account | Federal Student Aid .

Beginning in the 2024-25 award year, everyone contributing to the FAFSA form online must have their own account or FSA ID. Please keep this information in a safe place so that you can refer to it each time you complete a FAFSA form. Remember the FAFSA form must be completed on an annual basis if you plan to apply for federal student aid. For additional information how to get your account or FSA ID set up visit:

Create and Access Your Account (

The username and password for both and FSA ID should be the same. The terminology has been updated between the 2023-24 FAFSA year and the 2024-25 FAFSA year.

If your parent is required to provide information on the 2024-25 FAFSA form, they will need a FSA ID, even if they do not have a social security number.
