These changes include updated application questions, financial need calculations, as well as the FAFSA platform itself. The new FAFSA will not be launched until December 2023, instead of October 1st. Please visit acpe.alaska.gov/alaskafafsacompletion for FAFSA updates.

The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education will mail your 1098-E tax statement to you by January 31, 2024, if you paid more than $600 in qualifying student loan interest under a single Tax Identification Number (TIN) from January 1, 2023 through March 31, 2023.

American Education Services will have information related to interest payments made from April 1, 2023 through December 31, 2023. Please refer to the Tax FAQ webpage on AES’s website for more information.

Together, ACPE and AES will support Alaskans by providing tools and resources to streamline education loan repayment. For account information or to make a payment, please contact the AES Customer Service Center at 1-800-233-0557. For more information, please review these frequently asked questions.
