Deadline for FAFSA:
When to apply for FAFSA, how to apply for FAFSA, deadlines for FAFSA and FAFSA due dates are frequently asked questions and concerns.
The earliest you can submit the new 2014 - 2015 FAFSA will be January 1, 2014. The government will not release the new application until January 1, 2014.
To be eligible for financial aid there are a few FAFSA deadlines you will have to meet to determine when to apply for FAFSA.
- State Deadlines: There are deadlines for FAFSA and it varies by state. You must have your FAFSA submitted before the due date for state financial aid consideration. My program will provide a listing for all state FAFSA deadlines.
- College Priority Deadline: Many colleges have a priority deadline, which is the latest date you may submit your FAFSA for first round financial aid consideration.
- College Financial Aid Deadline: The last day to have your FAFSA submitted for financial aid consideration.
Some of these deadlines may be as early as January. You must always meet the earliest deadline. How to apply for FAFSA? You should always fill out and submit your FAFSA online.
Many schools do not have an official financial aid deadline and the final deadline for the 2014 - 2015 FAFSA is June 30, 2015.
If possible, submit your FAFSA in January of 2014. If it is now past January, do it as-soon-as-possible.

The FAFSA instructions recommend completing your 2013 income tax returns before submitting your application. DO NOT WAIT TO DO YOUR TAX RETURNS!!!
Colleges grant financial aid on a first-come, first-served basis. You should submit your FAFSA using estimates and update the amounts after you file your tax returns.
When you submit your FAFSA using estimates, a college financial aid officer will have everything necessary to put your financial aid package together.
Until a college receives your FAFSA, your file stays in the incomplete pile. When the financial aid officer receives your FAFSA, your file will go to the bottom of the financial aid pile!
In the meantime, the financial aid officer will be reviewing everyone with complete files ahead of you and awarding financial aid, leaving less for you.
This is only one of the glaring strategic mistakes in the FAFSA instructions that could make a difference of thousands of dollars in financial aid.
The earlier you submit your FAFSA the better. Submitting your application early puts you at the front of the financial aid line where the most money is available. After completing your income tax returns you will be able to update your estimates.
To help you submit your FAFSA early, I will give you an early look at the new FAFSA months ahead of time, and give you simple line-by-line instructions to correctly complete it.
You will be prepared months in advance of the FAFSA being released and ready to submit it on January 1, 2014.
If you are reading this and it is past January 1, 2014, my program will help you complete FAFSA quickly and accurately. You will never have to worry about your FAFSA being rejected or delayed due to inconsistencies and errors or losing financial aid due to strategic errors in the FAFSA instructions.
Don't go through the complicated and confusing financial aid process alone.
