Subject: 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA on the Web Worksheet, and the Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet for Question 23 (Updated February 4, 2016)
Note: On 2/4/2016 we replaced the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and FAFSA on the Web Worksheet, (English and Spanish), with updated versions. The links at the bottom of this announcement will take you to the updated documents.
The final versions of the 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) and the 2016-2017 Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet for Question 23 are now available in English and Spanish, in Portable Document Format (PDF).
This version of the FAFSA is provided to the community as a resource that can be used as a training tool or for financial aid presentations; this version cannot be submitted by students for processing. Students should use the fillable PDF version available on the FAFSA Web site for submission to Federal Student Aid.
The Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet for Question 23 is used to assist applicants with determining eligibility for federal student aid when a conviction has been reported for possessing or selling illegal drugs on the FAFSA, or when question 23 on the FAFSA has been left blank.
The 2016-2017 FAFSA on the Web Worksheet (English) and the 2016-2017 FAFSA on the Web Worksheet (Spanish) provide a preview of questions that students and parents may be asked while completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov. This Worksheet is optional and should only be completed if students are planning to use FAFSA on the Web (FOTW®).
The FAFSA on the Web Worksheet will organize the student and parent financial information needed for FOTW. The FAFSA on the Web Worksheet is not the financial aid application, nor is it part of the application. It is simply a tool to help students complete FOTW, and should not be submitted to Federal Student Aid.
