PA FAFSA Submission Deadline Extended

In an important update for students and families across Pennsylvania, the Board of Directors at the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) has extended the submission deadline for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) to June 1, 2024.

This extension comes in light of recent issues, including delays and errors associated with the FAFSA Simplification Act's implementation. As stated by PHEAA President and CEO, Jim Steeley, this year has seen significantly fewer FAFSA submissions compared to previous years. Students are encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible to ensure they are considered for the PA State Grant Program. For details on how to apply, visit the PHEAA Press Release.

Emergency FAFSA Completion Webinar

In addition to the deadline extension, PHEAA is hosting an emergency webinar titled "PA FAFSA Go!" on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. This session is aimed at addressing concerns related to FAFSA completion and its impact on student aid in Pennsylvania. Participants will have the opportunity to engage directly with experts from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and PHEAA. To join the webinar and be part of the call to action to increase student applications, register here.

These initiatives underscore PHEAA's commitment to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to access financial aid resources efficiently and effectively.
