The 2022-23 FAFSA is Now Available! 

 

 

The 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is here! Here are a few tips you can share with your students.

 

This year students can access the FAFSA by visiting StudentAid.gov or  by using the myStudentAid mobile app. The FAFSA should be completed as soon as possible after Oct. 1 to ensure priority consideration for some types of financial aid. It’s best to gather all necessary materials before starting the FAFSA. Since the 2022-23 FAFSA allows applicants to use 2020 tax information, families can use their 2020 return to complete the application right away! There's no need to wait.

 

To complete and submit the FAFSA online, students and one of their parents will each need to create an FSA ID (Federal Student Aid ID) at StudentAid.gov. This username/password serves as an electronic signature on the FAFSA and certain student loan applications, and allows users to access other federal student aid websites. It’s beneficial for families to create their FSA IDs before starting the FAFSA to speed up the application process. Visit UCanGo2.org to download an FSA ID Worksheet (in English and Spanish) to keep track of your information.
