FAFSA 2024-2025 Walkthroughs
The revised Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) will go live by December 31, 2023. Completing the form can be daunting, and with the new updates, it can be even more so. But, with the right resources, it can be manageable.
For a more in-depth guide, check out our second recommendation, the NEW 2024-2025 FAFSA Walkthrough from David Cantu at Best College Aid USA. This video is about 44 minutes long and includes a recording from the Department of Education, with additional commentary from David. This video is particularly helpful for understanding the nuances of the new FAFSA.

Completing the FAFSA may seem intimidating, but these resources will help make the task less stressful!
