Filing your FAFSA

  • If you have already filed a 2022-2023 FAFSA, be sure that Drake is listed as a school to receive your FAFSA information.
  • If you have already completed the 2022-2023 FAFSA with Drake listed and have not received a Drake financial aid award offer, contact the Office of Financial Aid.
  • If you plan to attend summer 2022, fall 2022, and/or spring 2023, you may now complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA. The 2022-2023 FAFSA will be completed with 2020 tax information.
  • If you received a request from Drake for additional information, for either FAFSA year, please respond as quickly as possible. You may also log in to the Financial Aid Portal to see if you have any outstanding requirements or items.
  • If you have not filed a FAFSA, complete the 2022-2023 FAFSA now.
