Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) website: https://fafsa.ed.gov/ 

What exactly is PPY?
PPY stands for prior-prior year, and references the tax information students use to fill out the FAFSA. Currently, the form requires tax data from the previous year. Starting in October 2016, students will complete the FAFSA using tax information from two years prior to their anticipated college entrance date. For example, a high school senior planning to enroll in college in fall 2017 would file the FAFSA using tax data from 2015.
