Step 7: Renew My FAFSA

Renew your FAFSA each year as soon as possible on or after January 1st for the upcoming fall, spring, and summer terms. You can renew your FAFSA before you file your federal tax return using estimated income information, however you will need to correct your FAFSA once you have filed your taxes.

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.
