File Your Renewal FAFSA for 2017–2018

All continuing students are encouraged to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)/renewal FAFSA by the March 1, 2017 priority deadline. Filing the FAFSA enables you to be considered for federal and state financial aid. 

It is important to note that the tax information used to complete the FAFSA for 2017–2018 has changed. It will now come from two years prior to the year of the application you are filing. For instance, if you are filing the 2017–2018 FAFSA, it will use tax information from you and your parents from 2015. Because you will be using the same information on the 2017–2018 FAFSA as you would have on the 2016–2017, it is important to make sure that all of the information is identical. This also means that completing the FAFSA will no longer require waiting for the prior year's taxes to be filed. View more information about this change.

You can file the FAFSA/renewal FAFSA online using Drexel's school code, 003256. We recommend using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to expedite the process of filing, since the DRT will import tax information from you and your parents onto the FAFSA.

Students who file after the deadline may not be considered for certain types of need-based financial aid, including Federal Work-Study, Perkins Loan, SEOG Grant, and the DU Endowed Grant (please note that other eligibility requirements apply to each of the awards listed).
