The FAFSA application was available for submission beginning October 1st, 2016, for the 17/18 school year. Starting with the 17/18 school year, you can submit your FAFSA using the tax information from 2 years prior. That means your 17/18 FAFSA will use the information from the taxes you filed in 2015. OSU's FAFSA Priority Deadline is February 28th! The initial FAFSA filing date is used for awarding limited funds so earlier is better. FAFSA applications submitted after February 28th may still be eligible for federal financial aid such as the Pell Grant, FORD Direct Loans, and PLUS Loans.
