Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Changes


Due to the passing of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Simplification Act on Dec. 20, 2020, the United States Department of Education will be making significant changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The purpose of these changes is to simplify the process of applying for financial aid. Baylor College of Medicine strongly supports this effort and we want to keep you abreast of the new process and changes to that process.

The FAFSA will be released to students on Dec. 31, 2023. The Financial Aid Office will not, however, be receiving any electronic information of data until the end of January (exact date TBD).  This will delay the posting of aid offers for July of 2024.  We will inform you immediately once we know more about the projected date that FAFSA will communicate with us.


What You Need to Know


Stay Informed

Stay informed about the changes and receive up-to-date notifications and information:

  • Did you fill out a FAFSA form for 2023-24? Log in to your account and be sure they've got your current email address. Once the exact FAFSA launch date is announced, the Department of Education is expected to send out an email to students who applied on the 2023-24 form, reminding them to apply for 2024-25. Baylor College of Medicine Office of Student Financial Aid will also be communicating this information to you once it becomes available.
  • Didn't submit a 2023–24 FAFSA form? Make sure to create your account — and remember your username and password so you can access and submit the 2024-25 FAFSA form when it is available.
