File FAFSA now for 2017-2018 college year

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as FAFSA, for 2017-2018 is now available, according to the UIS Office of Financial Assistance.

Students previously filed for FAFSA starting Jan. 1; new rules now say Oct. 1. The earlier date is designed to allow families more time to get an accurate amount of how much money they’ll receive from the government.
