What does completing the FAFSA early mean for Schoolcraft students?

The availability of the FAFSA beginning Oct 1 will mean that Schoolcraft will start processing and awarding 2019-20 FAFSA’s beginning in early March 2019. Once we begin the awarding process, students will need to check their SC mail account for their award notice or if the Office of Financial Aid requires additional information.

Will I have to complete the FAFSA at a new website?

No. The FAFSA will be completed at the same website, www.fafsa.gov.
