Important changes have gone into effect beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA®:

  • You’ll be able to submit your 2017-2018 FAFSA® as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling you to complete and submit a FAFSA® as early as October 1 every year.
  • You’ll use earlier income and tax information. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA®, students will be required to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. On the 2017–18 FAFSA® you will report your 2015 income and tax information, rather than your 2016 income and tax information.
