Subject: 2019-20 myFAFSA Preview Presentation

We are pleased to provide the attached Microsoft PowerPoint presentation containing information and screen shots pertaining to myFAFSA. The purpose of the presentation is to provide financial aid administrators (FAAs), mentors and counselors with screen shots that can be used as a reference tool for the 2019-20 myFAFSA component of the myStudentAid mobile app. We encourage you to use this information for internal staff training or other outreach activities.

Note the following items:

  • The presentation screen shots include only the student role, with the exception of the signature process, where we show both student and parent roles.

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

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

With more than 295,000 downloads since Oct. 1, we also urge our partners in the financial aid community to encourage applicants and parents to download and use the myStudentAid mobile app. Highlighted features of myFAFSA for the 2019-20 processing cycle include:

  • Students and parents may begin, complete, and submit a new or renewal FAFSA form for the 2019–20 FAFSA processing cycle.

  • Students and parents may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) to electronically transfer federal tax return information into a FAFSA form.

For additional information about other key elements of myFAFSA, see the electronic announcement dated October 2, 2018.
