Opening Day FAFSA UpdatesCollege Board Communications
The National College Access Network (NCAN) shared these tips about completing the 2019-2020 FAFSA.
Many of you have started working with your students on the 2019-20 FAFSA with yesterday's application opening. NCAN is aware of the following issues and offers the following recommendations:
Fafsa.gov is currently experiencing browser issues
FSA recommends clearing your web browser cache, and if that doesn’t work, trying a different browser.
The mobile app- myStudentAid’s IRS Data Retrieval Tool is not working
To minimize the chance of being selected for verification, NCAN recommends that students use the DRT on fafsa.gov instead of trying to manually enter tax data via the FAFSA mobile app.
The 2019-20 Paper application is hard to locate online.
Both can be found in the Forms & Worksheets section on FSA’s Resources page: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/resources
