Updated FAFSA Launch Officially Delayed Two Months To December

"The Department of Education (ED) has officially said that this year’s Free Application for Federal Student aid (FAFSA) will not open until December, two months later than usual. The delay comes as the result of a huge overhaul of the federal form that students use to apply for financial aid to help pay for college. An exact date in December has not been announced yet," Forbes reports

... "Advocates began to worry about delays to FAFSA last month when officials from ED said they could not commit to October 1 during a conference for financial aid administrators. As a result of those concerns, several groups, including the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, called for clarity on when FAFSA would be available."
