New Financial Aid Change Will Allow College Students to Apply Earlier

Oct 7th, 2015 | By | Category: Tribal College News Roundup

Rather than FAFSA form filing taking place after January 1, 2017, with families using their 2016 federal tax data, as would be the case under the traditional schedule, the Obama policy change will allow students and their families to file the form beginning October 1, 2016, along with use of their 2015 federal tax information.

 

This new change will make it easier for students at tribal colleges and universities to apply for financial aid
