Get ready for the FAFSA
Filing the FAFSA, aka the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the best way to get federal or state financial aid. We want to help you with the tips below:
4 Steps to a successful FAFSA
- Save the date
The FAFSA can be submitted starting October 1.
- Grab your tax information
You will want to have your latest tax return handy when it is time to complete the application.
- File as soon as you can
Some financial aid is first-come, first-served, so don’t wait to file.
- Don’t guess what you’ll get
The only way to know what aid you will qualify for, is to apply. Submit an app— it’s free.
