Looking for 2022 - 23 FAFSA State Deadlines? Find them here. Though it feels as if school just started, it’s already time to look forward to the next school year. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, otherwise known as the FAFSA, launches on October 1. This form is significant because it is the only way to qualify for federal aid as well as some state and institutional aid. The FAFSA application has a 20-month application cycle, meaning it will be valid as an application until June 30, 2022. However, most states distribute financial aid on a first-come, first-serve basis. So, if you hope to qualify for state aid to pay for college, your state deadline is the one you need to follow.
