In early November, the Office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) announced that the 2024-2025 FAFSA will open by December 31, 2023. This new FAFSA will have many changes, including the important provisions for homeless and foster youth. However, the delay from the usual October 1st release will shorten the amount of time students have to complete the FAFSA and to make an informed decision about choosing a college.

✍ Strategies to Stay Proactive and Support Students

Until the 2024-2025 FAFSA is available, we encourage our network to be proactive and stay up to date about the release date, continue to identify students experiencing homelessness and students in foster care, provide FAFSA determinations, and help students and parents create FSA IDs. Learn more about the strategies here.
