Big changes for a Better FAFSA Better Future! This session will focus on the Department’s implementation of the FUTURE Act and the FAFSA Simplification Act. We will review the legislation and discuss the phased implementation from 2023–24 through 2024–25. The session will conclude with additional resources, upcoming training dates, and an opportunity to ask questions.
The IRS DRT is being replaced by the Future Act Direct Data Exchange (FADDX). The session will cover your responsibilities in protecting FTI beginning with the 2024–25 FAFSA form. We will also cover the consent process for students and parents and the impact of failure to consent.
Stop scrolling! You need this! In 2024–25, you will note multiple changes to the Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) that are the result of updates to FAFSA questions and processing changes.

Learn about changes to professional judgment for both the 2023–24 and 2024–25 award years, including changes related to unaccompanied homeless youth and foster care youth determinations. We will also discuss 2024–25 verification changes.

Financial Aid Administrators (FAAs) have a significant role to play in the successful implementation of Better FAFSA Better Future. What will the aid applicant experience look like, and how will you assist? How do you identify and work with partners, both internal and external to your campus, during implementation? How will your policies, procedures, and operations be updated to align with all the changes? This session will highlight items for you to consider as you answer each of these important questions.
