Did you hear about the 2024-2025 FAFSA updates?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) has recently undergone changes that you should know about. The new 2024-25 FAFSA was released on December 31, 2023.

Changes include:

Student Aid Index. Transition to a Student Aid Index (SAI) rather than the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) in evaluation of eligibility of student aid.

Grandparent-owned 529s. Eliminated the reporting required for grandparent/third party accounts, removing the impact a grandparent-owned 529 account has on the aid award packet.

Schools on list. Doubled the number of schools a student can list on the application to receive their information, from 10 to 20.
