To apply for federal student aid, complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA is a free application that gives you access to lots of types of financial aid to help pay for college. The 2024-2025 FAFSA will be available by January 1, 2024.

To ensure timely processing of your FAFSA, it is recommended you fill out your FAFSA by May 1, 2024. Students admitted for the Spring 2025 term should apply before November 1, 2024.

When completing your FAFSA, be sure to include Arizona's school code (001083) to avoid delays in the processing of your aid. Remember, you need to complete a FAFSA each year!

Expert FAFSA help is available for Arizona high school seniors through Arizona FAFSA Assistance.
