You can delete all information entered in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, by selecting the "Clear All" button at the bottom of the application, but this only works if you haven't yet submitted your application for student aid. Saved applications get deleted automatically after 45 days, or when the federal application or correction deadline passes. Once you submit your FAFSA application, you can't go back and delete the information submitted or change the Social Security number associated with the application. However, you can access your submitted application and make any necessary corrections, delete schools and update entries if information, such as your dependency status, financial situation or number of people in your household, changes.

    Is it better to renew or start a new FAFSA?

However, if you haven't completed one in the past, you'll have to start a new form. more
    Do I start a new FAFSA for graduate?
