Mapping Your Future provides webinars on a variety of topics as a service to schools, sponsors, educators, and community organizations.

Get ready for the big changes with the 2024-25 FAFSA

FAFSA Simplification, which will be implemented with the 2024-25 FAFSA, is the first major redesign of the financial aid process in more than 40 years.

In the webinar, we'll discuss the upcoming changes to the FAFSA and what those changes may mean for financial aid offices, as well as for students and families. In addition, we'll share ideas for promoting FAFSA completion. Financial aid professionals, counselors, and others who are helping those students complete the FAFSA or are managing student verification, can get the latest instructions and helpful tips by attending training offered by Mapping Your Future.
