For the 2024-25 academic year, the Federal Department of Education (DOE) is introducing a redesign to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The customary opening date of October 1 has been postponed to December 2023. Keep an eye out for notifications regarding its availability. It's important to note that this delay is applicable to all educational institutions across the United States, not exclusive to FPU.

The redesigned FAFSA form is the most significant redesign of the federal student aid application and delivery in decades, and will significantly simplify how students, parents, and other educational stakeholders use the FAFSA form.

The Student Financial Services Office at FPU is committed to helping you navigate all the changes the federal government is making. Our team has been working with experts and training to ensure a smooth transition. A notification will be posted here, along with communications sent via email, once the 2024-25 FAFSA opens in December.

Anyone providing information on the FAFSA will need to have an FSA ID. Please go here.

For California Residents, March 2nd is the deadline to submit your FAFSA for Cal Grant eligibility.

Contact if you have questions or for more information.

Financial aid is the only reason I am in school. I have been fortunate enough to have financial aid cover all of my schooling because I cannot afford it on my own. When I met with a financial advisor, he was helpful and answered all my questions!
