This year, students applying to college for the fall of 2017 will be able to start the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) beginning on October 1st. The FAFSA process is now better timed to the college admissions process, giving students more time to compare colleges, investigate financial aid options, and apply for state aid before the priority deadline (now February 1st in Missouri).

Students will also be able to use prior year tax information to complete the application, simplifying the process and giving students greater confidence their information is accurate.

If you are a student, start your FAFSA today at fafsa.gov. Need help? Visit the Federal Student Aid site.
