In the past, parents and students seeking financial aid for post high school studies, submitted the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after they had completed the prior year's taxes - around February of each year. Starting with the 2016/2017 school year, the FAFSA will be available October 1st.  This means the window for applying for federal aid begins sooner allowing more time to review and compare college costs and financial aid packages.
