FAFSA Now Available
Seniors, the 2019-20 FAFSA is now available to complete. FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid and needs to be completed by all seniors in order to be able to receive financial aid for college. Even if you think your parents make too much money for you to qualify for federal grants, you still need to complete the FAFSA to be eligible for some scholarships and student loans. Most colleges require the FAFSA. And to make sure you apply for all the financial aid that is available to you, complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1.
You will need to collect some information before beginning, including (in most cases) your parent’s 2017 tax return information. Click below for a worksheet that will help you with the information you will need to have. Also, click below for more detailed information about completing the FAFSA.
We are planning a FAFSA workshop for seniors and parents on October 16, where we will provide hands-on training in completing the FAFSA. More details to come.
