The White House has officially announced a couple of changes to FASFA that will affect college students nationwide. The first change is applicants will now be able to apply three months earlier for FASFA. College students used to have to wait until January to start their FASFA applications but now they will be able to submit applications as early as October. The second change is in regards to how college students use their family’s tax return information. Normally students had to use the most current tax information on their families, meaning they had to wait until January to get that information. Now students have the ability to use their families tax history from two years ago.
