FAFSA Deadline Extention until July 1 for Commonwealth of Massachusetts
In light of the many challenges presented by COVID-19 for students and families, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has chosen to extend its 2020-2021 FAFSA filing priority deadline date from May 1 to July 1. This change in policy will largely impact students who are applying for the MASSGrant program. The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, along with its Office of Student Financial Assistance will continue to monitor and analyze 2020-2021 FAFSA filing data for Massachusetts resident students and further inform institutions of any other policy changes that may ensue. Please contact the Massachusetts Office of Student Financial Assistance at 617.391.6070 if you have any questions.
