The FAFSA should be completed as soon as possible — here’s how to fill out yours

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA (opens in new tab) for the 2023-24 academic year became available on October 1st. If you haven’t already filled it out, you should do it now rather than later. While the filing deadline isn’t for a while — June 30th, 2024 to be exact — you shouldn’t wait that long to get your application completed. 

When you file your FAFSA can determine how much federal aid you receive, as some states only have limited funds and offer scholarships and grants on a first-come, first-served basis. So, if you drag your feet on submitting your FAFSA, these funds could run out before you apply. Your chances of receiving aid increase the earlier you submit your application.
