2024-2025 FAFSA Changes

What is not changing?
While the FAFSA is being updated and the eligibility calculation has been revised, there are a number of federal student aid-related matters that will not change.
• The general types of aid available to UAFS students and federal student loan limits will not change.
• The FAFSA will still be required for consideration of federal and state financial aid every year.
• Dependency status questions that determine if your parent(s) must complete the FAFSA will remain the same.
• The FAFSA will still request tax information from the prior-prior year, which means you'll report 2022 income and assets on your 2024-2025 application.

The Shorter College Financial Aid and Veteran Benefits Office is dedicated to providing timely updates to students, families, and our community. Due to the significant changes that are occurring, portions of our website may not be 100 percent accurate for the 2024-2025 academic year. We will continue to update this page as we receive more information from the U.S. Department of Education and Federal Student Aid and appreciate your patience as we work to implement the changes brought by the FAFSA Simplification Act.
