For example, the 2016-17 FAFSA is available online 01/01/16-06/30/17. Starting with the 2017-18 FAFSA, the form will be available online for even more months:  it will be available online from 10/01/16-06/30/18.

SPECIAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE 2016-2017 FAFSA: The worksheet gives you a preview of the questions asked, and will help you gather the information you need before starting the online application.

Please note that Tulane's suggested deadline for FAFSA completion varies by student population, but in most cases is months before the academic year commences. Those whose FAFSA's are completed after Tulane's applicable suggested deadline may be considered for the type of aid requiring FAFSA completion if the student is otherwise eligible and funds remain available. In any event, the FAFSA must be received prior to Tulane's aid processing deadline (which is four weeks before the end of the academic period for which aid is intended, or the student's last date of attendance, whichever comes first).
