FAFSA Deadlines - 2022-2023

FAFSA Deadlines - 2022-2023

November 4, 2021The CollegeScholarshipsGrants.com Team

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid or the FAFSA deadline is important, but waiting until the last minute to apply has consequences. The sooner you apply, the more financial aid you can receive. That’s why the FAFSA opening date is the most important than the deadline in our opinion.

The FAFSA starts accepting applications every Oct. 1 and closes June 30. While June 30 is the federal deadline, each institution has different deadlines. If you are enrolling for the 2022-23 school year, the FAFSA will be available on Oct.1, 2021. If you’re looking for federal aid while you’re in school, you’ll need to complete the FAFSA every year.

State and institutional FAFSA deadlines

Many states have their own scholarships and grants for local students attending an in-state college. These scholarships are often limited, which is another reason to fill out the FAFSA sooner rather than later. Also, state aid deadlines are often earlier than the general FAFSA deadline.
