What You Need to Know
At the University of Puget Sound, we understand that financial aid is a crucial part your educational journey. We want to keep you informed about important updates to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2024–25 academic year.
In 2020, Congress passed the FAFSA Simplification Act, which makes substantial changes to how federal student aid works. The changes being implemented this year include an overhaul of the FAFSA application itself, new processes for determining who is eligible for aid, and updated procedures for colleges like Puget Sound that participate in federal student aid programs.
