Big changes are coming to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application for the upcoming 2024–2025 aid year. The Office of Financial Aid at ESCC will update this page as additional information is made available so that we can continue to educate students, families and our campus community on the new processes.
On December 27, 2020, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act. The law includes provisions that amend the Fostering Undergraduate Talent by Unlocking Resources for Education (FUTURE) Act and includes the FAFSA Simplification Act—a sweeping redesign of the processes and systems used to award federal student aid. Specifically, the law makes it easier for students and families to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form and expands access to federal student aid.
The 2024–2025 FAFSA process is going to look a bit different than in the past. Don’t worry, we’re here to help keep you informed. Due to the FAFSA delays in opening and being sent to institutions, we have moved our priority deadline to June 24, 2024. This is strictly for the limited need-based funds, such as the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant. Otherwise, we accept and process results all year, ongoing.
