President Obama, on September 13, 2015, took executive action to implement a move to using prior-prior year (PPY) income on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This move, long advocated for by NASFAA, will make the application process easier and more efficient, allow for earlier availability of important financial eligibility information, and ultimately reduce administrative burden for financial aid administrators. Watch this quick video to learn more about the move to PPY. After you’ve watched, take the next step by filling out our form to commit to moving to PPY for your institutional aid application.
