24-25 FAFSA opening December 2023

For the first time in more than 40 years, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is being overhauled to make the process as smooth as possible for families. This overhaul means the FAFSA is not opening October 1 as it normally is. The 24-25 FAFSA is expected to open in December 2023, with the exact date to be determined.

We will communicate with students through email and Albion Today notices as additional details become available.
