What to Do If Your or Your Family’s Financial Situation Has Changed
Many FAFSA applicants have experienced recent financial changes due to the COVID-19 emergency or other reasons.
Has your (or your family’s) financial situation changed from what is reflected on your federal income tax return? For example, you or a family member has lost a job or claimed unemployment benefits. If so, you may be eligible to have your FAFSA form adjusted to qualify for additional aid. Follow these steps:
- Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed (including using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, if eligible).
- Submit your FAFSA form.
- Contact the financial aid office at the school you plan to attend to discuss how your financial situation has changed.
Financial aid offices can adjust your financial aid award to reflect your or your family’s current income.
Visit StudentAid.gov/coronavirus for more information about COVID-19 and the FAFSA process.
The FAFSA form will be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance every Sunday from 3–11 a.m. Eastern time.
