FAFSA

Completing the FAFSA is the first step toward getting federal financial aid and state financial aid for college, vocational training, or graduate school. Many states and colleges use the information you provide on the FAFSA to determine your eligibility for state and school aid. Some private financial aid providers may also use your FAFSA information to determine if you qualify for financial aid they offer. If you do not complete the FAFSA, some schools will not even consider you for academic and non-academic scholarships that they offer. The FAFSA application opens every year on Oct. 1st
