What is the FAFSA?
The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, and is needed to get any financial aid from the federal government to help pay for college. Many colleges also use the FAFSA to determine which students get financial aid and how much they'll get.
- Submitting the FAFSA is the most important thing you can do if you want financial aid
- The FAFSA is FREE and you don't have to pay anyone to prepare it
- Be sure to use a permanent email adress and not your school email adress so you can use your account throguhout college
