Senior students can start to fill out the FAFSA starting October 1st! 
This is three months earlier than previous years. 

Senior students that intend to pursue post-secondary education can submit their FAFSA using 2017 tax information for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

Priority deadlines for filing the FAFSA at many Ohio schools are changing and in some cases moving up to December 1st.  Click here for a list of Ohio schools’ anticipated priority deadlines for filing the FAFSA for your reference.
