What Can You Do Now to Be Ready?

Here are some steps you can complete now in order to be ready when the new 2024/2025 FAFSA opens.

1. Create your account—and remember your username and password so you can access and submit the 2024/2025 FAFSA form when it’s available. 

2. Find out if your parent(s) or spouse will need to be contributors (contribute their info on your FAFSA form).

3. If your parent(s) or spouse will need to contribute to your form, make sure each contributor creates their own account. Even if a contributor doesn’t have a Social Security number, they will be able to create an account when the 2024/2025 form goes live.

4. Make sure you and any contributors have completed your 2022 tax returns. This information will be required for the FAFSA.

5. Watch these videos on YouTube from Federal Student Aid: “Preparing for the FAFSA Form” 

What is the FAFSA?

FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid.

The FAFSA form is used to apply for federal student aid such as student grants, student employment via work-study, and student loans. In addition, Texas uses your FAFSA information to determine eligibility for state and school specific financial aid.

It's important that every student complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to avoid delays in awarding money for college.

  • Check the form carefully before submitting to make sure there are no mistakes.
