Video: How Prior-Prior Year Helps Students

Thanks to executive action taken by President Obama on September 13, 2015, instead of waiting until you and/or your parents have completed your tax returns for the previous year, you can now complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or the FAFSA, using information from TWO years prior. Watch our quick video to learn more about how you’ll benefit from this new move to using prior-prior year income data.

For more resources on prior-prior year (PPY), read about the executive action taken by President Obama, watch our video to hear from financial aid administrators about why this move to using PPY is so important, or take a look back at NASFAA’s advocacy efforts surrounding PPY.
