FAFSA® Announcements

Check out our latest announcements regarding the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) process.

  • The IRS Data Retrieval Tool will be unavailable from Saturday, May 25, starting at 8 p.m. through 7 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, May 28, due to maintenance. During this time, students can still complete and submit a FAFSA® form by entering the necessary tax return information manually.

  • Customers who are using an Apple device (mobile and/or desktop) may encounter errors on some FAFSA fields if the “smart punctuation” feature is enabled. This feature changes apostrophes and quotation marks to invalid characters that the FAFSA form cannot recognize. Learn about solutions for this error.

  • Check out the myStudentAid app for iOS and Android.

  • To get the best experience, make sure your browser’s pop-up blocker allows pop-ups from fafsa.ed.gov before logging in to the FAFSA form.
