The goal of the FAFSA prior-prior year is to expand college opportunity by ensuring students and families more time to consider their college options with an understanding of the financial resources available to help them pay for college.

Students will be able to submit a 2017-18 FAFSA as early as October 1st, 2016, rather than January 1st, 2017. For the 2017-18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income and tax information instead of the 2016 income and tax information.
