College Planning

Considering college? Here's some helpful info for parents and students.

 

Affordable Online Colleges

Finding the most affordable online colleges comes down to looking for the best value, not just the lowest cost. You want to get what you pay for and then some, especially given that any degree is a two or four-year investment.

 

FAFSA

Need some help filing your FAFSA?

Upcoming Changes on the 2017–18 FAFSA®

 Starting with the 2017–18 FAFSA, the application will be available earlier and will request older income information.

 

The 2017–18 FAFSA will be available for applicants to fill out beginning on Oct. 1, 2016. This is three months earlier than the traditional FAFSA launch date of Jan. 1. The October launch date will continue in subsequent years.

 

The 2017–18 FAFSA will request information from applicants' 2015 tax returns. Traditionally, the FAFSA has requested information from the tax return due near the beginning of the application cycle. For instance, the 2016–17 FAFSA requires 2015 tax information, which some applicants did not have available in time for school or state deadlines that fell early in 2016. But subsequent FAFSAs will request data from tax returns that should already have been filed, simplifying the process for applicants.

 

In addition, applicants will no longer need to estimate income and tax information and will be able to retrieve their data directly from the IRS, right from the first day the FAFSA is available. Students also will have information about their Expected Family Contributions earlier, helping them as they're going through the college application and selection process.
