Reapplying for federal student aid

Previous

You must apply for federal student aid for every school year that you attend. To reapply, you should submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you submitted a FAFSA last year, and you are eligible to complete a Renewal FAFSA, you may choose to have most of the questions pre-filled with the information you provided. Simply updating the information for the new school year on a Renewal FAFSA may be faster. However, the Renewal FAFSA is available solely for your convenience. If you prefer to start fresh with a new FAFSA, you are free to do so.

To reapply, click Login on the home page to log in to FAFSA on the Web, and then click FAFSA Renewal.

Note: If you are eligible to complete a Renewal FAFSA, you will be asked to provide your PIN, as well as answers to income, asset, and tax questions. You must also update any information that has changed since last year.

You can reapply for financial aid through your college’s financial aid office if the school participates in Electronic Data Exchange (EDE). You should contact the financial aid office at the college you plan to attend for more information.
