2024-25 FAFSA

Federal Student Aid announced a delay in the launch of the 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The 2024-25 FAFSA is scheduled to open in December 2023.

This delay is due to several updates and simplifications Federal Student Aid is implementing to improve the overall FAFSA process for students and families.

FAFSA Resources

MiSSG Student Portal

For students to have access to the MiSSG Student Portal, they must have a current-year Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file (typically received 3-5 days after submission) or have a Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) record.  First time student users must have their Social Security number when signing up to create a username and password.
