Understanding FAFSA Simplification

The 2024-2025 FAFSA is Changing!

Simplifying the financial aid application process: the FAFSA Simplification Act is an initiative by the United States Department of Education to make applying for federal student aid easier for students.  As a result, the 2024-2025 FAFSA opened on December30, 2023 (rather than October).

The Cal Poly Pomona Financial Aid & Scholarships Office is dedicated to keeping students, families, supporters and our campus community updated.  We will continue to update this webpage as we receive more information from the Department of Education.
