FAFSA Website

This is the landing page for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  For New Start you must complete BOTH the 24-25 (New) FAFSA for the upcoming school year AND the 23-24 (Old) FAFSA for summer funding.  The summer session is considered the last part of the academic year, so you must fill out this FAFSA for summer funding.  



23-24 FAFSA

Having trouble finding how to complete the 23-24 FAFSA?  Here is a link to get you started.
