        What is FAFSA?

        The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a form that determines your eligibility for federal financial aid, including grants, loans, and work-study programs. Completing the FAFSA is the first step in accessing financial support for college or career school.

        Why complete the FAFSA?

        Access Financial Aid: The FAFSA is used to apply for federal student aid, which can significantly reduce the cost of your education.
        State and School Aid: Many states and colleges use your FAFSA information to award their own financial aid.
        Scholarships: Some scholarships require a completed FAFSA as part of their application process.

        Who should complete the FAFSA?

        High School Seniors: If you’re planning to attend college next year, you should fill out the FAFSA.
        Current College Students: You need to complete the FAFSA each year to continue receiving financial aid.
        Adults Returning to School: If you’re returning to school or enrolling for the first time, the FAFSA can help you access financial aid.

        How to Complete the FAFSA

        The FAFSA form becomes available on October 1 each year. It’s important to submit your FAFSA as soon as possible because some aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadlines vary by state and school, so be sure to check the specific deadlines for your college or state. FAFSA Deadlines
