The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) process has changed to implement provisions of the FUTURE Act and the FAFSA Simplification Act. At a high level, the FAFSA changes are a significant overhaul of the FAFSA system, including an updated FAFSA form, need analysis, and provisions to many of the policies and procedures used by schools.
The FAFSA changes are being implemented in phases, with full implementation of major provisions in the 2024–25 award year.
The changes will provide
- a more streamlined application process,
- expanded eligibility for federal student aid, and
- a new user experience for the FAFSA form.
