Oct. 1-FAFSA application and renewal begins

This notice appeared in the Weekly Phoenix between September 21, 2021 and October 1, 2021.

The 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available beginning Friday, Oct. 1! Renewing your FAFSA is crucial because it is required for all need-based financial aid, as well as federal student loans. The sooner you apply, the more financial aid will likely be available.

The steps are easy:

  • Step 1: Renew your FAFSA for 2022-23 by logging in at with your FSA ID username and password, or use the myStudentAid mobile app for iOS and Android.
  • Step 2: Use 2020 income tax information to complete the FAFSA. Tax filers may have the ability to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically import their tax information into the FAFSA. This is quicker than entering the fields manually and minimizes potential for error.
  • Step 3: Choose to send your FAFSA to Florida Polytechnic University by entering our school code: 042634.
  • Step 4: Be sure to fully sign and submit your FAFSA by using your FSA ID and password. You will receive a confirmation at the end.

You will receive an email from the Department of Education letting you know your FAFSA has been processed (typically within three business days). You will also receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) that summarizes your information and estimated eligibility for federal student aid.
