FAFSA SUBMISSIONS OPEN OCTOBER 1ST
File early: Those who file early have better access to available money
Students who are college bound in 2018 and want to apply for federal grants, work-study, and loans, need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and easier than ever, and it gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.
In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to detemine whether you qualify for their aid.
