What is the FAFSA?

The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. It is the online form you complete to be eligible for financial aid. 

Why should I fill out the FAFSA?

If you don’t fill out the FAFSA, you could be missing out on a lot of financial aid! We’ve heard a number of reasons students think they shouldn’t complete the FAFSA form. Here are a few:

  • “I (or my parents) make too much money, so I won’t qualify for aid.”

  • “Only students with good grades get financial aid.”

  • “The FAFSA form is too hard to fill out.”

  • “I’m too old to qualify for financial aid.”

If you think any of these statements apply to you, then you should read Myths about Financial Aid. The reality is, EVERYONE who's getting ready to go to college or career school should fill out the FAFSA form!  

When do I fill out the FAFSA?

The 2022 - 2023 FAFSA form will be available starting October 1, 2022.
