Step 7: Renew My FAFSA
Renew your FAFSA each year as soon as possible after January 1st for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer terms. The 2013-2014 FAFSA will become available on January 1, 2013. You can renew your FAFSA before you file your federal tax return using 2011 estimated income information, however you will need to correct your FAFSA once you have filed your taxes.
- If you started a folder to keep your financial aid paperwork, then you should have a print out of your PIN that you can use to renew your FAFSA on the Web.
- Keep your email and mailing address up to date on your FAFSA and on the PIN website. The U.S. Department of Education will use these to send you important announcements and reminders.
