The 2013-14 FAFSA is available from January 2013 and will be used to award financial aid for the Fall 2013, Spring 2014 and Summer 2014 semesters.
File your 2012 Federal Tax Return first, allow the IRS about 3 weeks to process your returns and then, complete your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval tool. This tool is simple, easy and quick to use.
