Obama Administration Unveils Shifts in FAFSA

Hi All

Here is some interesting news. In 2016 students will be able to submit the FAFSA in October using 2015 IRS data. This should allow our students to have a good sense of their need based aid 3+ months sooner and using IRS data that is available. This has implications for us as ASPIRE Mentors. I am going to have to rearrange my college planning workshops and offer the “Preparing for the FAFSA” and “Completing the FAFSA” workshops in September and October.

Here is a link to the article announcing that.

There should be more news forthcoming so stay alert.
