Financial News: Parents did you know you no longer estimate income on the
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)? Applicants now use
"prior-prior-year" information from tax returns that have already been filed
- for example, the 2016 tax return will be used for the 2018-19 school year.
A copy of the FAFSA Calendar is given below.
