***The 2018-2019 FAFSA will be available starting October 1st, 2017***

Four things that you need to know before you begin.

  • Students and parents can use their 2016 income and tax information to file their 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning October 1, 2017.

  • Students and parents will be able to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) when completing the 2018-2019 FAFSA. When you use the DRT, tax information will auto-fill into your FAFSA. Using this tool will result in fewer errors and faster processing. 

  • Some students will be federally selected for Verification.  CSU will notify you via email if you are selected.  You will be required to submit 2016 Tax Return Transcripts and other documentation.

  • Award Notifications will begin in January for new freshmen and in February for our continuing students.
