The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an application to apply for federal grants, work-study and loans. Completing the application is free and easy to do online at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa. Once you have completed the application, you will have entry to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career training schools. In addition, many colleges and universities use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for their financial aid programs. Some private financial providers use your FAFSA information to determine if you qualify for their financial aid.
The deadline for the FAFSA application is April 15.
February 24th is College Goal Sunday.
