FAFSA to be earlier and simpler

The date that students can submit the Free Application for Student Aid is changing to Oct. 1 starting in 2016. The Obama Administration hopes that by using earlier income data families will get information earlier, simplify applications, help more students get Pell Grants and other aid, and reduce the administrative burden for colleges. This earlier date from Jan. 1 more closely corresponds to when many students are searching and
applying for colleges.
