Department of Education's myStudentAid app offers convenience, but no 2021-22 FAFSA yet

The myStudentAid App makes it easy to complete the FAFSA on the go.

However, students and parents wanting to complete the 2021-22 FAFSA won't be able to take advantage of that convenience until later this year.

The Department of Education won't include the 2021-22 version of the FAFSA on the myStudentAid app until later this year. Students who want to complete the FAFSA sooner should go to fafsa.gov or studentaid.gov to complete their FAFSA on the Web.

Students who do decide to wait to complete the 2021-22 FAFSA on the mobile app should make sure they are on a password-protected WiFi. Although the app is secure, students are entering personal information on the FAFSA and will need to make sure the WiFi is also secure
