美国.S. Department of Education has made many 更改和简化 今年的FAFSA. Here are some of the main updates:

  • 形式简化了, reducing the number of questions you'll have to answer

  • 学生,他们的配偶,和所有的父母/监护人的税务数据报告必须有 他们自己的FSA ID/学生援助.政府账户

  • 扩大了访问范围 申请联邦佩尔助学金

  • Larger Income Protection Allowances (IPA) 是否会导致学生或家庭收入能够支付大学学费的期望降低

  • 家庭现在被要求这样做 report the value of their farms or businesses, which will impact how 联邦 aid is calculated

  • no longer a benefit for siblings in college- FAFSA在确定援助金额时将不再考虑家庭中上大学的人数

The first step is to make sure everyone has their own Student援助.政府账户/FSA ID. The student 和 all contributors will need their own accounts, 因此,提前设置这些将简化你填写FAFSA的能力. 

  1. If you didn't 提交 a 2023-24 FAFSA form, make sure to 创建你的助学基金.政府账户. 记住您的用户名和密码,以便在2024-25年FAFSA打开时填写!

  2. 了解你的父母/监护人或配偶是否需要根据你的情况提供供款人 依赖状态

  3. 如果您的父母/监护人或配偶需要向您的表格提供资料,请确保每个提供资料的人 创建自己的学生援助.政府账户
如果学生是受抚养人,并且他们的父母/监护人共同纳税, only one parent is required as a contributor 和 needs an FSA ID. If the student's parents/guardians did not file taxes jointly, both are considered contributors 和 must have their own FSA IDs. 

You'll fill out the 2024-25 FAFSA using tax information from 2022.

The FAFSA usually operates with the previous year's tax information. Even though the FAFSA is opening later than usual this year, make sure you use your 2022 tax information.

由于今年的变化,美国的财政状况将有所改善.S. 教育部表示,从FAFSA向大学传递信息将会延迟.

我们预计在4月份发布传统本科学生的奖励通知. 在我们的集体项目的学生需要注册之前,经济援助奖将被发送.
