Filing the FAFSA Archive

Each year, Edvisors publishes a new version of Filing the FAFSA to correspond with any changes made by the U.S. Department of Education. This page provides an archive of download links to previous editions of the book.

Information from previous versions of the book may not correspond with what appears in the current FAFSA, but much of the advice will still be relevant and helpful.
