Submit Your FAFSA Earlier
Students will be able to submit a 2017-2018 FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016, rather than beginning on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit their FAFSAs as early as October 1 every year.
Use Earlier Income & Tax Information
Beginning with the 2017-2018 FAFSA, students will report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017-2018 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income and tax information, rather than their 2016 income and tax information.
Here’s a summary of key dates for submitting the FAFSA depending on when you plan to go to school:
