FAFSA® Announcements

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

  • The fafsa.gov website will be unavailable from 10 p.m. Eastern time (ET) on Saturday, July 20, through 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, July 21, due to scheduled maintenance.

  • 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.
