The new official FAFSA Application is changing this year! One of the major changes is that it will now be available much earlier!!
Starting 10/01/2016, you will be able to complete your official federal application for financial aid, including grants and federal student loans for the 2017-2018 school year!
Great news, right?! Yes, it is- this means no more rushing to get everything set-up and done at the last minute or trying to budget and plan for the unknown/unexpected.
BUT...the earlier availability of the application is not the only important change taking effect- there are also new guidelines to reporting income and what documentation will be accepted to verify income.
If you are not aware of these changes or have never completed the application, you may want to consider contacting me for assistance or just for more information. I can help you navigate the vague and often-times tricky process of applying for educational funding.
Don't put it off and get left behind this year- contact SL_Xpert for more info today!!
