FAFSA Day is a non-profit, volunteer driven program providing free assistance to students and families seeking to complete
the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Please note: Typically, the FAFSA opens on October 1 for students and families starting college the following year. But this year, the FAFSA is delayed until late December 2023. The department of Education is working on simplifying the FAFSA process and how financial need is calculated.
We will be adding additional information here as it is available.
