Complete the FAFSA Now!

The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 each year. October is the best time to file the FAFSA if you plan to start a postsecondary program. Don't hesitate to file your FAFSA later in the year even if you missed the best time to file – you may still qualify for some aid.

Remember, you should file the FAFSA as early as possible – some institutions have very early FAFSA deadlines – check with your school's Financial Aid Office to find out. Some programs may have later deadlines. The priority deadline to file the FAFSA for the Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) and the Alaska Education Grant (AEG) is June 30.
