    Same problem here.... I already filed the CSS but not FAFSA...

    Had the same problem a few days ago...I don't think all of the new changes are going so smoothly. Also, I would not trust the "Link to IRS" to get my information filed on time.

    I cannot get past the login page without getting an error that the page cannot load. Hope it's fixed by tomorrow...

    ^I had the same problem earlier this afternoon. I restarted the computer just for fun and it worked.... worth a shot but obviously not a guarantee. Best of luck.

    Yes, I was trying to make corrections at 8:20pm EST, and I got in, began my corrections, and then nothing would save or progress. Argh! Very frustrating with Feb. coming! I hope this isn't going to be a trend.

    Are you using Explorer? It seems to work best with IE for the browser.

    Was just about to start a thread on this. I started it but I was waiting for my parents to officially file their taxes today and the sites down, does anyone know if the February 1st deadline is midnight on Feb. 1st (end of today) or at 11:59 pm on Feb. 1st (end of tomorrow)?

    Yeah, same here. Im freaking out kinda. I need to actually start it, not just make corrections. I hope its up soon....as in now.

    Just an update, successfully filled out all my info but when it came to actually submitting the document, it logged me out! What a bummer!

    For the school I called the deadline is 2/1, I asked the same thing, thinking I had til the end of tomm, but was told had to file by midnight tonite in their timezone, which is 11pm for me. Just finished, keep trying.
  • lhopex3lhopex3 Posts: 2Registered User New Member
    In my timezone I have two hours to go and FAFSA is not working. What happens if FAFSA is still down at that time? This is not good.........
  • harsh121harsh121 Posts: 17Registered User New Member
    FAFSA needs to buckle down and fix this mess AHHHHHH.

    Hey retro - exactly what school are you talking about?
