2024-25 FAFSA Changes

This has been a challenging year with the changes to the 24-25 FAFSA. While many of the changes are welcome improvements, the release of the FAFSA records to the schools had been delayed and continues to require several updates by the Department of Education to correct their calculating methodology. Some features of the FAFSA, are still not currently available.

ACPHS has been adapting to these changes and proactively taking steps to ensure our students and future students receive notification of their aid as quickly and accurately as possible. Given the constant changing evolution of the 24-25 FAFSA, some awards may need to be adjusted after receiving an award notification, but students will receive an update should adjustments be necessary. The Financial Aid Office at ACPHS is currently processing incoming FAFSA records for 24-25 and will continue to do so daily. Should students and families have a concern about their aid, please reach out to the Office of Financial Aid. We are available via email, phone and by appointment for in-person consultation.

If you have not received an award notification yet, you can visit our New Price Calculator on our website to receive an estimate of your aid for the upcoming year. If you have not completed a 24-25 FAFSA yet, please do so as soon as possible. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
