Each school has a specific deadline, though most are due between February 15 and March 1.

You can start the 2016-2017 FAFSA as early as January 1st, and families can use 2014 or 2015 tax information. So, if you don't file 2015 taxes until after the FAFSA due date, you can use your 2014 numbers or make an estimate from your current W-2's.
