2024-2025 FAFSA Delayed
Due to historic changes for FAFSA simplification starting the 2024-2025 academic year the FAFSA application for federal student aid has been delayed. At this time the Department of Education has not confirmed the released date but anticipates the FAFSA to be available in December 2023. Both the Department of Education and CalArts will send out notifications to students when it becomes available.
