Better FAFSA, Better Future

Big Changes are Coming to the FAFSA for the 2024-2025 Award Year! The FAFSA Simplification Act was passed by Congress in 2020 and includes the first major redesign of the FAFSA system in over 40 years. 

A better FAFSA means a better future and will offer families an improved interface and seamless filing experience. Updates to the FAFSA will reduce errors, remove barriers, and expand student eligibility for federal aid.

When will the 2024-2025 FAFSA be Available?

The Department of Education will release the FAFSA for submission in December 2023. SU students should plan to file by Seattle U's priority of February 1.

What's Changing with the FAFSA?

Federal Student Aid Estimator Tool

Federal Student Aid Estimator | Federal Student Aid

With this tool, students can find out how much federal student aid they may be eligible for starting with the 2024–25 award year—note that this tool estimates the Student Aid Index (SAI) for 2024–25 award year, not the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) for 2023–24 award year.

To apply for financial aid for this year (2023-2024), complete the 2023–24 FAFSA® form.

The 2024–25 FAFSA form will be available in December 2023.

How is Your SU Gift Aid Impacted?

Seattle U’s gift aid guarantee means that your total institutional gift aid will not change! If you are continuously enrolled, continue to make satisfactory academic progress and file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually, Seattle University guarantees the amount of institutional gift aid (grants and/or scholarships) that incoming undergraduate students will receive each year over the course of their attendance at the university.
