If I am attending DPT school in summer or fall of 2021, when am I supposed to start my fafsa application? I’ve only gotten an acceptance to Touro and a waitlist on my top school. On Touro’s website it says to start my application in October, but wouldn’t that be too late? I also want to check potential financial aid for the other programs I applied to as well. Is it too early to start my fafsa application now? Also do people apply for TAP too?

Submit your FAFSA. I did about a month ago. They allow you to add up to 10 potential schools (so you don’t have to add only schools you were accepted into).

Hi! it means October of this year so two months ago but you’re good to submit it up until June but the sooner you do it the better :)

Would adding parental information make a difference?
I heard since it’s doctorate school, you have to file independent? But the way I see it is if you aren’t living at home/getting more than 1/2 assistance from your parents then you should file independent. I did independent bc I’ll be living in my own and paying my own tuition without help from my parents. I hope that makes sense and helps!

I’m filling out the application rn and it doesn’t allow me to adjust household size so I’m just automatically set as independent lol 🤷🏻‍♀️ Thanks anyways!
