New FAFSA® Mobile Options

New FAFSA® Mobile Options

This summer we’re introducing two new ways to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form: a mobile-friendly version of the fafsa.gov website and a mobile app.

Now Available: Redesigned, Mobile-friendly FAFSA® Website

The fafsa.gov website has an updated look with new colors and has been redesigned so that the site pages will fit the screen size and shape of any device, including desktop or laptop computers and mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. You can now complete the FAFSA form on a mobile device with the same ease as on a desktop or laptop computer.

The new design of fafsa.gov also offers the following features:

  • The “Help and Hints” display box has been replaced by “tool tips” that provide information about each FAFSA question.
  • While the number of questions on the FAFSA form remains the same, the questions are displayed in a more user-friendly way, with some now grouped in a different order to ease navigation through the site.

Coming Soon: FAFSA® Completion on myStudentAid Mobile App

Later this summer, the myStudentAid mobile app will launch. The initial version of the app will feature the myFAFSA component, which can be used to complete the FAFSA form. Subsequent versions will offer additional functionality. Watch this space for the launch announcement!
