Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
- Completing the FAFSA is the first step toward getting federal aid for college, career school or graduate school.
- Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and quick and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school. In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA data to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid.
- Apply for federal grants, scholarships and loans during your senior year.
- You should submit your FAFSA by the earliest financial aid deadline of the schools to which you are applying, usually by early February.
