FAFSA for 2020-2021

The 2020-2021 FAFSA is available as of Oct. 1, 2019.

  • The 2020-2021 FAFSA will be used to determine your financial aid eligibility at UNF for Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021.
  • Your 2020-2021 FAFSA will use 2018 tax information. This means no more pressure to file your tax returns early or opting to estimate taxes.
  • You may be eligible to use the FAFSA IRS data retrieval tool (DRT). UNF and the US Department of Education highly recommend that all students and families use the IRS DRT if possible. This tool makes filing your FAFSA much easier and your estimated financial aid award results will be more accurate. 
  • If you use the IRS DRT and don't change any of the retrieved information in your FAFSA, you likely won't need to provide tax transcripts or W-2 forms if you're selected for verification.
  • Knowing your expected family contribution (EFC) earlier allows you more time to plan and budget for the 2020-2021 aid year.
