Changes Impacting the 2017–18 FAFSA®
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and how is it changing?

The FAFSA® is the application that students must complete to apply for federal student aid, which can be used to attend an eligible college or career school. Federal student aid includes Federal Pell Grants, federal student loans, and work-study opportunities. In addition to determining eligibility for federal student aid, many states, private organizations, colleges, and career schools rely on information from the FAFSA to determine eligibility for nonfederal sources of aid.
Two major changes to the FAFSA will take effect for the 2017–18 school year. (The 2017–18 school year runs from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018.)

1. The FAFSA will be available earlier (October 1 of the previous year instead of January 1 of the upcoming school year).

2. The FAFSA will collect income information from an earlier tax year. Here’s a table with a summary of the changes. You will find details below the table.

Which Year’s Income Information Is Required

July 1, 2018–June 30, 2019

October 1, 2017–June 30, 2019



1. The FAFSA will be available earlier. Currently, students cannot complete a FAFSA for the upcoming school year until January 1. For example, for the 2016–17 school year, an applicant cannot complete a FAFSA until Jan. 1, 2016. Beginning with the 2017–18 school year, applicants will be able to complete a FAFSA as early as October 1 of the previous year. (See table.)

2. The FAFSA will require information from an earlier tax year. The second major change also begins with the 2017–18 FAFSA cycle. Currently, in addition to other information, FAFSA applicants (and their parents, if applicable) must report the prior year’s income information. For example, for the 2016–17 school year, applicants must report income information for 2015—the tax year before the beginning of the school year. Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will report income information from two years prior, which in this case is 2015 income information—two tax years before the beginning of the school year. (See table.)

State Deadline

Ohio - October 1, 2016, by midnight, Central Time.* For students that are attending college in the 2016 - 2017 school year

College Deadline
Check with the college(s) you are interested in attending. You may also want to ask your college about its definition of an application deadline - whether it is the date the college receives your FAFSA, or the date your FAFSA is processed.
