Important Information for Students and their Families
Good news: The Federal government recently made some big changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) so that it is faster – and easier – for students to complete.
These changes take effect with the 2024-2025 FAFSA, which determines your financial aid eligibility for the Fall 2024, Winter 2025, and Spring 2025 semesters.
Below is a brief outline of what has changed and what students need to know.
Our Student Financial Services team is here to help you with your FAFSA. If you need a helping hand with it, just stop by and see us.

If you are completing the FAFSA for the first time, there are many details you need to be aware of before, during, and after you submit the application. Monroe's Financial Aid department has created a FAFSA & TAP guide so you can know every step in the process. You can also check out this great instructional 2024-2025 FAFSA & TAP Guide.
For all students who need help submitting a FAFSA when it becomes available, please watch our FAFSA tutorial video to help you complete the application. Monroe’s FAFSA Code is 004799.
