2022-2023 FAFSA Applications Are Open: What’s the Deadline? and other details
FAFSA Applications: There are many people in society who are able to get into college and pay the fees, but many cannot simply pay their fees. They have the ability to do something, but due to lack of money, they back down. But now money will not be a big obstacle. People seeking financial aid can simply fill out the form and college fees will be paid. Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the application one has to fill out. It is currently open for 2022-2023 students. Application forms open on October 1. So let us find out more about this app in this article.
What is FAFSA?
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that can be filled out by current and prospective college students. It is for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This form is for the United States. There are some eligibility criteria as well. One has to meet the following criteria:
- One must be registered with the Selective Service System
- The child’s academic progress must be satisfactory.
- He/she must be a US U.S. citizen or national or an eligible non-citizen
- A student must possess a valid Social Security number
They are essential criteria.
How to fill out the FAFSA form?
This year’s forms will be available on October 1. To complete the application form, the student and parent must first be registered on fafsa.gov. They then have to fill in all of their biographical information. After filling in all the students, you have to fill in whether they are registered for the Selective Service or not. They also have to fill out drug convictions. They will then be asked about their college and degrees. Then comes a legal process. It is about tax affiliation. Then there is a column for parents’ tax information if a student is dependent on his or her parents, which they usually are. Then a few more personal details and your process is over.
Changes in the app this year?
In the past, there were two questions on the form that didn’t matter. The first question is about the drug conviction. And the second question is about enrollees in the Selective Service. Previously, students using drugs were not accepted. But this year this has changed. Even so, now, the question will be there on the form, but it will not be an obstacle to the acceptance of your request. Aside from that, there will also be a few more changes according to the Federal Student Aid website. The changes are that there will be some other minor tweaks including a visual update to the website.
