2021-2022 Winter FAFSA Campaign

Federal Student Aid is sending emails, SMS and mobile application push notifications, when applicable, to 2020–21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) filers (and parents of dependent 2020–21 FAFSA filers) who have not yet submitted a 2021–22 FAFSA form.

Financial aid offices can use the language from the campaign in their own communications.

The goal of the campaign is to remind customers that the 2021–22 FAFSA form is available and should be completed soon for those going to school between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. Students and parents can complete and submit the 2021–22 FAFSA form electronically on fafsa.gov or via the Apple or Android version of the myStudentAid mobile app using the FAFSA feature.

Eligible students and parents with a valid email address in the Central Processing System will receive an email sometime between Jan. 25, 2021 and early February. Students and parents may receive different messages based on certain factors. The specific email text can be found here: https://bit.ly/2Yc6H6H

Eligible students and parents who have opted in to receive SMS and mobile app push notifications may receive a notification in addition to an email. SMS notification text and mobile app push notification text are also available at the link above.
