Counselor Resources

Counselor Resource Center for the new FAFSA

This center helps you get the most up-to-date information on the 2024-25 FAFSA and guide you in supporting dependent students through this new process.

Each section has detailed information and a Q&A format to answer questions you’ll be getting from students and parents.

FAFSA Changes: A Guide for Counselors

Here’s a quick reference guide summarizing FAFSA changes and how they impact your families. Get your copy, and please share it with colleagues.

Complete Video Walkthrough of 2023-24 FAFSA

This step-by-step walkthrough guides students and parents on how to complete this year’s FAFSA from the log-in screen to signature page.

It’s narrated primarily from the POV of a student completing the FAFSA. I’ve included chapters for each section, so that students and parents can go directly to the sections they need help on. It includes closed captioning, as well as Spanish and Haitian Creole subtitles.

Feel free to share or post on your resources page.

You can also download this student/parent checklist of the information and documents they will need to complete the FAFSA.
