2020–21 FAFSA Form Available on myStudentAid App and fafsa.gov
The 2020–21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form is available to students and parents to complete through the myStudentAid mobile app and the fafsa.gov website.
myStudentAid Mobile App
You can complete the 2020–21 FAFSA form using the myStudentAid app. Download the myStudentAid app in the Apple App Store (iOS) or the Google Play store (Android). The myFAFSA component—which is used to complete the FAFSA form—is one of the app’s featured functions. Note: If you downloaded the app prior to Sept. 29, you must update the app to access the 2020–21 FAFSA® form.
The following are key features of myFAFSA in the October update:
- Students and parents may begin, complete, and submit a new or renewal FAFSA form for both the 2020–21 and the 2019-20 FAFSA processing cycles.
- You’ll be offered a customized experience based on your role (student, parent, or preparer). The app provides guidance on how to complete the FAFSA questions.
- You’ll have a secure experience with the same data protections as completing the FAFSA form through fafsa.gov.
- Students and parents may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT), now mobile responsive, to electronically transfer federal tax return information into a FAFSA form.
- You may be eligible to transfer your FAFSA information into your state aid application. Participating states include Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Vermont.
