Apply for 23-24 FAFSA

The FAFSA becomes available on October 1 each year. October is the best time to file the FAFSA if you plan to start a postsecondary program. Don’t hesitate to file your FAFSA later in the year even if you missed the best time to file – you may still qualify for some aid.

The Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education provides many resources on the FAFSA, the Alaska Performance Scholarship (APS) and the Alaska Education Grant (AEG).  Read more details by clicking here to log on to the family side of the IDEA website or check your Monday IDEA News sent via email.
