FAFSA 2024-25 will open Dec. 31

The 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, form won’t be available until late December, according to an OU press release

The form was originally supposed to open Oct. 1 this year, but the U.S. Department of Education is still making changes and updates to the application, the release stated. 

The new opening date is expected to be Dec. 31. 

Notable changes to the form include eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant expanding to consider family size in combination with the federal poverty line, and the Pell Grant will also be affected by the student’s credit hours. 

According to the release, students with divorced parents will only report financial information to the parent who provides greater financial support to the student and their spouse’s information if they have remarried.

The Estimated Family Contribution will change to the Student Aid Index and will change the student aid calculation to include negative numbers with a minimum calculation of -1500, according to the release.

The 2025-26 FAFSA form is expected to open October 2024.
