How do I pay for college?!
There are many options when it comes to paying for college. Both financial aid and scholarships can help!
What is the FAFSA?
- The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is a form available annually to all prospective and current college students to determine their eligibility for aid.
How do I fill it out?
- You can fill out the form on the FAFSA website: http://fafsa.ed.gov
What information will I need?
- For all students planning to attend college during the 2019-2020 school year, 2018 tax/income information is required.
What's the deadline?
- The FAFSA is available on October 1, 2019. Most financial aid is on a first-come, first-served basis, so students are encouraged to prepare and file as close to opening day (October 1, 2019) as possible.
