FAFSA Simplification

Due to the passing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Simplification Act on December 27, 2020, as a part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, the FAFSA is changing for the 2024–2025 aid year.

You can expect the following changes:

  • The 2024–2025 FAFSA form is now periodically available. The U.S. Department of Education announced a soft launch of this year’s form, meaning it will be available for short periods of time while officials monitor site performance and form functionality. We encourage you to continue checking the FAFSA website frequently, as the form's availability has been sporadic.
  • The 2024–2025 FAFSA determines your financial aid eligibility for the fall 2024, spring 2025, and summer 2025 terms.
  • The FAFSA application process will be streamlined and easier for students to complete.
  • New terminology will be added to the FAFSA.
  • Eligibility for federal financial aid will be expanded.
2024–2025 FAFSA Available

The redesigned and streamlined 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, which determines a student's financial aid eligibility, is now available! When you're ready to submit the FAFSA form, Dominican University's code is 001750.

What You Need to Know
  • The U.S. Department of Education recently announced that the FAFSA is available periodically as part of a soft launch of the 2024-25 form. 
  • During the soft launch, the FAFSA form will be available for short periods of time while the department of education monitors site performance and the functionality of the new form. 
  • The department of education has not yet announced how long the soft launch period will last.
  • If you submit your form during the soft launch period, your information will be saved, and you won't need to resubmit your form or any related information. 
  • If your form is unavailable when you or your student try to access it and complete it, we recommend that you please try again shortly.
