Use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form to apply for financial aid for college or graduate school.

  • The new 2021–22 FAFSA form is here! Some states and schools have limited funds, so don’t delay! To begin your application, select the “START HERE” button on the FAFSA homepage.
  • Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation
    If your or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then contact the school you plan to attend to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education. Visit StudentAid.gov/coronavirus for more information.
