Common App accounts created in 2015-2016 will roll over to 2016-2017! This means that juniors can create their account now — or whenever they are ready — and it will be available for them in 2016-2017 as seniors.
The College Board will offer the SAT test for the first time in August for the 2017-2018. The anticipated date is August 26, 2017.
Prior-Prior Year (beginning 2016 for aid applications for the 2017-18 award year)
Prior-Prior Year (PPY) refers to a policy enabling students and families to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) using tax information from two years ago. For example, a high school senior planning to enroll in college in Fall 2016 would be able to file FAFSA using taxes from 2014.
