NASFAA, along with the National College Attainment Network (NCAN), recently sent a joint letter to the Domestic Policy Council and Department of Education (ED) asking the administration to confirm that the 2024-25 FAFSA will be live on Oct. 1, 2023, and if not, to confirm when will the 2024-25 FAFSA be released.
For a student without parental support, the financial aid office must get documentation (such as a signed written statement or an institutional form) indicating: That the student's parents refuse to complete the FAFSA, or that the parents do not and will not provide any financial support to the student (include the date support ended). Changes to Section 479A of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended, [20 USC 1087TT], effective July 1, 2023, state the requirement is an "or" proposition. This is a change from the 2022-23 award year and earlier when the requirement was a "and" proposition. View the full answer to this question to learn more.
