    FAFSA Priority Deadline: April 1

    File Early!

    Now you can fill out your FAFSA beginning October 1.

    Applying early:

    • Allows you to find out your award sooner
    • Could help you get more grant funds
    • Helps you get your aid before the semester starts
    • Can also qualify you for scholarships

    No need to wait until you have filed your 2016 taxes.

    The 2017-18 FAFSA uses your 2015 tax return.
    Tip: Use the Data Retrieval Tool to get through the process even faster.

    The priority deadline for completion of the FAFSA is April 1. Any other financial aid documents should be submitted by April 15. If you apply after April 15, financial aid is still available, though it may not be processed by the time school starts.
