What are the FAFSA deadlines?
The federal government, state governments and each college and university have their own deadlines to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). While the federal FAFSA deadline is June 30 of the award year, state FAFSA deadlines and college FAFSA deadlines are often much earlier. Some award aid on a first-come, first-served basis. It is generally a good idea to ask your school's financial aid office about their deadlines. Call the college's financial aid office or check its web site for specific deadline dates.
In the meantime, here are some more helpful resources on these application deadlines:
