Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is the first step toward getting federal aid for college, career school, or graduate school. FAFSA provide more than $150 billion in grants, work-study funds, and loans each year.
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.
First, be sure to establish a FAFSA ID (learn more about creating a FAFSA ID with this video). Remember, both a parent/guardian and the student each need an ID to electronically sign the FAFSA. The FAFSA is available to complete beginning October 1 of senior year. Additional resources are below including a video of our evening presentation and all handouts from that event.
