By now you should have learned about the change in the financial aid process.  

On September 13, 2015, President Obama signed an executive order that will allow families to complete the 2017-18 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using income information from the 2015 federal tax return.  This is the same information that you and your parents(s) reported when filing the 2016-17 FAFSA.  As a result, the 2017-18 FAFSA may be filed as early as October 1, 2016. 

With this new change, we decided to host:

FASFA DAY oFriday, October 21st in the Lefrak Center, Instructional Lab #113. 

Come by anytime between 10am-1pm and complete your FASFA for 2017-2018 with the help from Barnard's very own financial aid counselors!


Refreshments will be served!

Please RSVP, by emailing Dean Tollinchi at
