• FAFSA Opens October 1, 2020

    Posted by LE on 9/25/2019

    Although the myStudentAid app is available now if you still need to complete a 2020-2021 FAFSA, the application for the 2021-2022 year won’t be available until Oct. 1. You will also have to wait until then to use the IRS Data Retrieval tool (which automatically imports tax information required on the FAFSA), and to be able to renew or correct an application.
