2024-25 FAFSA processing has been delayed; here are some next steps

Due to continuing maintenance on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Department of Education has announced that schools will not receive applicant FAFSA data until the first half of March.

What this means for students:

  • Aid packages will be delayed. The financial aid office will provide detailed timelines for financial aid offers closer to March, when FAFSA data is expected to come in.
  • Continuing students will receive the same institutional aid next year, but federal and state aid will be determined by your new FAFSA information.
  • If you made a mistake on your FAFSA, you will not be able to make corrections until it is processed.

Next steps:

  • Check your emails for updates from George Fox’s financial aid office and the Department of Education. You will be notified via email when your FAFSA is sent to George Fox.
  • Processes such as Verification and Professional Judgments will move quickly after George Fox receives your information, so complete your FAFSA as soon as possible!
  • Don’t forget to apply for scholarships while you are waiting on your FAFSA to process.

If you have any questions, you can view our website for more information about FAFSA Simplification, reach out to the university’s financial aid office at finaid@georgefox.edu, or schedule an appointment with your financial aid counselor.
