Applying for financial aid
To receive federal financial aid (grants, loans and work-study) you must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid each year. The FAFSA is officially open for 2024-25! The new FAFSA is a simplified and streamlined experience years in the making. Many students are ready to get started and will be completing their FAFSA this month, so If you experience a pause, or can't log in please just wait a few hours or set a reminder for the next day to jump back in with your FSA ID and complete the application. For more questions go to studentaid.gov/apply-for-aid/fafsa/filling-out or call 1-800-4-FED-AID. If you experience expected issues or challenges, please visit this webpage for a helpful list of known issues and ways to troubleshoot.
File your FAFSA
Once you submit your FAFSA, check your Priority Actions box in My ASU regularly to be sure that ASU does not need any additional documents from you to verify your FAFSA. All requests will be listed in My ASU or sent to your ASU email.
