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

  1. Save the date
    The FAFSA can be submitted starting October 1.
  2. Grab your tax information
    You will want to have your latest tax return handy when it is time to complete the application.
  3. File as soon as you can
    Some financial aid is first-come, first-served, so don’t wait to file.
  4. 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.

Choose the student loan that’s right for you
