Government release FAFSA each year on October 1st.  Our suggestion is to submit your FAFSA application on October 1st or soon after this date to have a best chance of getting aid. You need to complete FAFSA application each year you attend school. If you are High school senior planning to attend college in Fall 2018, you will complete 2018-2019 FAFSA and report income from 2016 tax year.

If you are attending school year starting on July 1st, 2017, then you must submit FAFSA application between October 1, 2016 and June 20, 2018. For school year starting on July 1st, 2018, then submit FAFSA application between October 1st, 2017- June 30, 2019.
