Help: Submitted FAFSA too early

jumpin95jumpin95 Registered User Posts: 14 New Member
Hey guys, I guess you can all say I am an idiot... but here's my situation:

I was extremely affected by Hurricane Sandy and have not had power for 10 days. As an ED applicant, I rushed to complete my FAFSA and submitted a 2012-2013 form when I should have submitted a 2013-2014 form.

What should I do?

    You can't submit the 2013-2014 form until January 1, 2013 because it won't be available online until then. Don't worry about this.

    It's not a big deal. Nothing will happen with the FAFSA you have submitted as you are not in school in the current school year. Just make sure you submit the 2013-2014 FAFSA early when it becomes available in January. Your personal (not financial) data that you entered in this years FAFSA can be used to populate your 2013-2014 FAFSA.

    Did you have any other forms to submit for the ED consideration? A school form or the Profile?
