FAFSA® News and Enhancements

In the following sections of this page, you'll find the latest scoop on enhancements to the current FAFSA forms or plans for next year's FAFSA form.


Note: We'd like to request that you encourage students and parents to create FSA IDs as soon as possible, especially if they think the Social Security Administration might have incorrect information for them in its files. Send students and parents to StudentAid.gov/fsa-id/create-account to create an FSA ID. Meanwhile, we've developed several resources to help you get the word out about the FSA ID.


Changes on the 2023–24 FAFSA® Form

The 2023–24 FAFSA changes include the following:

  • Selective Service and drug conviction eligibility questions will be removed from the FAFSA form.
  • The myStudent Aid app retired on June 30, 2022.

Tell your students: the first F in "FAFSA" stands for "free!" There are websites at which students can get help filing the FAFSA® form for a fee. These sites are not affiliated with or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education (ED). We urge you to advise your students not to pay these sites for assistance that is provided for free at ED's website.
