If you have gone to college or have had a child go, chances are you’ve filled out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, better known as FAFSA.
Changes to this form announced by the Obama administration in 2015 are about to go into effect for the 2017-18 school year.
One of the biggest changes to the application is how soon you can fill it out.
You can submit the form for the 2017 school year beginning Oct. 1, 2016.
This is sooner than in previous years.
