Changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application in the 2024-2025 aid year.
The FAFSA Simplification Act, enacted by Congress in 2020, marks a substantial overhaul of federal student aid. This transformation encompasses alterations to the FAFSA application itself and the need analysis that determines eligibility for federal aid and adjustments in terminology.
Traditionally, the FAFSA has been available on October 1 each year. Because of these substantial alterations, the 2024-25 FAFSA will not be accessible until sometime in December 2023. Wake Tech will post the exact release date when it's announced.
