FSA PUBLICATIONS TO END PRINTING AND DISTRIBUTION

The FSA Publications Ordering Site will no longer print or deliver FSA publications to institutions and others after August 30, 2018. In a memo to institutions FSA explains that their current offering of publications and resources will only be available electronically after that.

You can visit FinancialAidToolkit.ed.gov/resources for tools and resources (including electronic versions of publications) that you can use in your financial aid awareness outreach to students and parents.

FSA is advising institutions to begin directing students and parents to StudentAid.gov/resources so they can view electronic versions of publications, fact sheets, online tools, and other resources to help them prepare and pay for college or career school. StudentAid.gov is FSA’s informational website for students, parents, and borrowers.

Publications and resources for postsecondary schools will continue to be available on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) website at IFAP.ed.gov as well as on StudentLoans.gov. Similarly, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form will continue to be made available in paper form.

FSA is expected to provide guidance later this year regarding paper Direct Loan Master Promissory Notes and the Entrance Counseling and Exit Counseling as well as instructions for students and parents to request a paper FAFSA.
