Welcome to 2024! With the new year comes lots of developments in the world of college funding and planning. The FAFSA Simplification Act totally revamped the process of applying and qualifying for federal student aid. Simplification may not be an appropriate term; but what’s most important is that the form is now live on the FAFSA website. If you have a college bound student for the upcoming school year, you can (and should) access that form here. You can also utilize our new free Student Aid Index (previously known as the Expected Family Contribution) calculator on our website through this link.
