FAFSA Deadlines and Higher Pell Grants

Watch a short video that explains the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and how to apply for federal aid at: https://www.bestcolleges.com/blog/college-fafsa-deadlines/. “Each year, the FAFSA helps millions of students get aid for college. Learn when FAFSA deadlines are and what changes to expect for 2023-24 and beyond,” by Tyler Epps.

The 2023-24 FAFSA form opened Oct. 1, 2022, and will be available until June 30, 2024. This means that students who need financial aid for the upcoming 2023-24 school year can begin filling out the FAFSA now and will have all the way until summer 2024 to submit it (though the earlier you submit your FAFSA, the better).”

“The 2022-23 FAFSA form — which awards aid for the current 2022-23 school year — can still be filled out and submitted through June 30, 2023. Note, however, that many states and schools maintain earlier deadlines.”

“Students must submit the FAFSA to qualify for federal student loans, the Pell Grant, and other college and state-issued grants and scholarships. The same applies to college students who plan to apply for federal work-study.”
