The deadline to file the FAFSA for the APS is June 30 - but try to complete it as early as possible after it is released. The FAFSA becomes available in early January for the school year beginning the following Fall. Many financial aid programs using the FAFSA have deadlines as early as February 15.
You need to file a FAFSA for every academic year you plan to use the award. When you file, be sure to list at least one Alaska institution on your FAFSA - the institution you plan to attend should be listed first - and to list Alaska as your state of residency.
