2024-25 FAFSA & ORSAA Changes

The 2024-25 FAFSA and 2024-25 ORSAA are now open.

The biggest overhaul of the processes, systems, and application for FAFSA (and ORSAA, for Oregon) in decades occurred for the 2024-25 FAFSA and ORSAA application - known as the FAFSA Simplification Act

There are many new changes on the FAFSA, and the ORSAA will be updated to align with the FAFSA. As OSAC learns of new information, we will update this webpage. Please bookmark this page to check in on updates from OSAC, along with checking the Federal Student Aid resources.

January 2, 2024 Update for FAFSA:

The U.S. Department of Education has started the soft launch of the 2024-25 FAFSA form. During the soft launch, they will be initiating pauses to the site, during which time the form will not be available while they make improvements. 

Leading up to and during the soft launch, they uncovered some minor issues affecting users at various points in the application process, which is to be expected with the launch of a major new website. They are addressing these issues concurrently and will continue to monitor for additional issues users may encounter while they conduct the soft launch. For a full list of known issues that Federal Student Aid (FSA) is working through, please visit their Issue Alert page often for updates.
