2016-2017 Financial Aid Workshops

Work Sessions: Complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA

Two exciting changes happened with regard to the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)! 

  • You can submit your FAFSA earlier. You can file your 2017/18 FAFSA as early as October 1st, 2016 rather than waiting until January 1, 2017.  This means you can complete your FAFSA right now! 
  • You will use earlier income and tax information. Beginning with the 2017/18 FAFSA you, and your parent(s) as appropriate, will use your 2015 income and tax information to complete the FAFSA. This eliminates the need for many families to use estimated tax information and can instead use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically populate the tax information into your FAFSA. This expedites the process and allows the school access without requesting an additional tax transcript in most cases. 

Join us at one of UAA's free workshops! Our staff will help you submit the 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or provide answers to your FAFSA-related questions. All workshops are open to the public!
