2024-25 FAFSA and ORSAA Delay - December 2023

The Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) has notified colleges that there is a delay with the upcoming 2024-25 FAFSA and ORSAA applications. Instead of the normal October 1 open date, applications will open in December 2023. OSAC is staying up-to-date with all communications from Federal Student Aid regarding the FAFSA application and a finalized open date and has created a webpage for resources, notifications, etc. surrounding the 2024-25 FAFSA and ORSAA.

Current college students receiving Oregon Promise do not need to apply again for Oregon Promise. Current recipients must simply submit the 2024-25 FAFSA or ORSAA by June 1, 2024 and meet all Oregon Promise Renewal criteria.
