The upcoming changes to the Free Application to Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are sure to generate questions. To learn more about these changes and to get some answers, join Alex DeLonis, Associate Dean for Enrollment and Director of Financial Aid, at 7 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Dec. 5, 2023, for a virtual session on navigating the 2024-25 FAFSA.
The FAFSA is the application for financial aid at Wabash and determines eligibility for grants, work study, loans, and some scholarships. Minor updates are made annually, but for 2024-25, the big changes are being implemented.
“The changes coming to the FAFSA are the most significant we have seen in decades,” said DeLonis. “FAFSA filerswill see changes to both the user experience, and the formula that helps determine their aid eligibility. Attending this webinar is one way to assist the Wabash community in navigating these changes.”
The simplification effort, The FAFSA Simplification Act, expands eligibility for federal financial aid by streamlining the financial aid application process for students and families and providing a better user experience in completing the form. It also reduces completion barriers for certain student populations.
