The 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available to file starting Oct. 1.

Key components to keep in mind are the following: 

  • The FAFSA opens for the next academic year on Oct, 1.
  • Use income data from the 2019 tax year to file the FAFSA early. Students may be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to automatically import tax information into the application. Learn about the IRS DRT at StudentAid.gov/irsdrt

The 2021-2022 FAFSA will apply toward the Fall 2021 and Spring and Summer 2022 semesters. To maximize financial aid opportunities for the next school year, file the FAFSA early.
