President Barack Obama announced that prior-prior year tax (PPY) information will be used on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning with the 2017–18 school year.

Using two-years’ prior information on the FAFSA (as opposed to one-year prior information) can give families an earlier and more accurate idea of their anticipated college costs.
