Preparing for 2024-2025 Financial Aid

Most important things to know:

  1. The 2024-2025 FAFSA is now available at  We encourage you to complete this as soon as possible. We understand that some students and contributors are experiencing issues with various aspects of the application.  We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions, so we can help you to the best of our ability.  In some cases, we may have to defer you to the Department of Education for assistance.
  2. Students and families will see a different measure of their ability to pay for college which will be used to determine a student's financial aid eligibility and award. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is being replaced by the Student Aid Index (SAI). 
  3. We expect to receive your FAFSA information from the Department of Education in mid April.  We will communicate with you once we have your FAFSA at GVSU with more information on what to expect next.

As new details are regularly shared by the Department of Education, we will continue to update this webpage.
