When Is the Deadline for Submitting the FAFSA Application?

The online Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, deadline is June 30 for the 2015-16 academic year, and students must submit corrections or updates by September 19. Deadlines for state aid are dependent on residency and available through the FAFSA website by selecting the 2015-16 Deadlines link.

Depending on the type of aid sought, some states may have multiple deadlines. Colleges and universities may also have their own deadlines. Students applying for aid are encouraged to contact their schools to determine definitive dates and whether the deadlines refer to the dates the schools receive their FAFSAs or when their applications are ultimately processed.
