Early FAFSA

NACAC has several resources for those working with students:
1-min video for students about the changes: “Financial Aid Doesn’t Have to Be Scary

Discussion Board for professionals: This is your place to ask questions, share with your peers, and see how others are managing the transition to the 2017-2018 FAFSA.

Videos of two educational sessions presented at NACAC’s recent national conference can provide answers as you work to help students and families apply for federal financial aid. Sessions now available are:

  • The FAFSA: What You Need to Know for 2017-18 — The US Department of Education's Cindy Forbes Cameron outlines changes to the 2017-18 FAFSA and implications for students and parents. The IRS data retrieval tool, state and school FAFSA deadlines, and how verification is affected by the shift to prior-prior year (PPY) income information are also addressed.
  • Prior–Prior Year and You — Admission professionals discuss results from a recent PPY survey, share insights from their institutions, and engage the audience in an open discussion of PPY best practices.
