October has been a busy month so far, with historic changes such as the early-FAFSA where the 2017-2018 FAFSA became available October 1, and the 2017-2018 Federal Pell Charts being released early as well. Many OASFAA members are out in the field providing outreach to high school counselors and mentors, as well as to students and their families at college fairs and high school financial aid nights about the changes to the timing of financial aid applications for both our state and federal student financial aid programs.
