Changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) are making it easier for Mississippi State students and their families to get the financial aid they need to pay for college.
Thanks to the FAFSA Simplification Act, the new FAFSA application introduces several new features to help students and families apply for financial aid more efficiently, including:
- Significantly fewer questions to answer.
- Expanded integration with the IRS Direct Data Exchange, reducing the time applicants spend manually entering their tax information.
- Expanded eligibility criteria for aid, increasing the number and amounts of aid students may receive.
It is now easier than ever to apply for the financial aid you need to pay for college.
