The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form has been redesigned and streamlined for the 2024-25 college year. Because of this, the release of the FAFSA has been delayed. The new FAFSA form should be available by December 31, 2023.
To help students and families prepare for the release of the FAFSA, high schools are holding a ‘Financial Aid Focus Week’ from December 4-8. Below you will find links to information and resources, as well as a link to register for a free webinar for BSD families on December 6 “Financial Aid 101 with FAFSA Changes: How Financial Aid & Scholarships Work and the Looming FAFSA Changes”.
