Subject: 2018-2019 FAFSA on the Web Preview Presentation

To assist the community with the 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA®) processing cycle, we are pleased to provide the attached Microsoft PowerPoint presentation containing information and screen shots pertaining to the 2018-2019 FAFSA on the Web (FOTW®) site.

The purpose of the 2018-2019 presentation is to provide financial aid administrators (FAAs), mentors, and counselors with screen shots that can be used as a reference tool for the 2018-2019 FOTW site. We encourage you to use this information for internal staff training or for high school night presentations.

Note the following items:

  • The screen shots in this presentation are intended to show a majority of the questions on FAFSA on the Web; however, most students and/or parents will likely not need to answer all of these questions when completing their application.

  • This presentation does not include any screen shots of the FAFSA Correction process, as this process is similar to the initial FAFSA completion process.

  • All data used to create this presentation is test data and is intended to show examples of what the site looks like.

In addition, detailed information about enhancements to FAFSA on the Web is provided in the 2018-2019 Summary of Changes for the Application Processing System guide, which is available on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website.

The 2018-2019 Web Demonstration site is available at The demonstration site can be used as a training tool for your staff and for students and parents. You can access the demonstration site using eddemo as the User name and fafsatest as the Password.
