The 2024–25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form is available periodically as part of a soft launch. 

During the soft launch, the FAFSA form will be available for short periods of time while site performance and form functionality are monitored. Pauses will occur for site maintenance and to make technical updates as needed to provide you with a better experience.

For maximum consideration of financial aid, we recommend that you submit your FAFSA by the following dates:

  • February 15, 2024 for all students who are new to Penn State
  • April 15, 2024 for all students returning to Penn State
  • May 1, 2024 for Pennsylvania residents who are interested in applying for the Pennsylvania State Grant*
