The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA/TASFA) form must be resubmitted every academic year. Also, just because you may not have qualified during the previous year, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t apply this year as well. The FAFSA/TASFA for 2021-2022 opens on Thursday October 1, 2020, so we’re encouraging everyone to get started as soon as possible!
