2021-22 FAFSA and NYS Application for TAP Now Open

  • The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is found at fafsa.gov.
  • At the end of the FASFA, students who are NYS residents and indicated at least one NYS college on their FAFSA can access the NYS TAP application and complete both applications in one session.
  • Helpful FAFSA features include the Internal Revenue ServicesData Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) that enables students and their parents to electronically transfer their 2019 tax return information when completing the FAFSA.
  • Encourage your students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible to meet college deadlines and maximize their financial aid. Many colleges use FAFSA information to calculate amounts and types of aid students may qualify for, and each college has its own schedule for awarding financial aid.
