The 2024 FAFSA Dilemma

You may have heard a little drama surrounding the 2024 FAFSA. There is a processing delay. According to the CEO of NACAC (National Association of College Admission Counseling), the US Department of Education released an electronic statement announcing that data from the FAFSA will be delayed until March.

Colleges and universities cannot issue financial aid awards for incoming students without this data. This means there will probably be a delay in the traditional May 1 College Decision Day. Because of this dilemma, the NACAC CEO requests consideration be granted for extending the due date for acceptances. As of this post on February 1, there is no further information on the rollout of the financial aid data.

Expect timelines for financial aid and scholarships to be adjusted as the plane is being flown and built simultaneously.
