All Financial Aid Offices (including GVSU) are currently unable to make any changes to the 24-25 FAFSA due to delays from the Department of Education.  We will likely not have access to make these updates until July.  In the meantime, we will accept forms and documentation.  We are committed to helping you navigate your special circumstance.  If this delay is impacting your decisions and/or planning, please contact us to discuss your options.
