Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Part of the journey to college includes figuring out how to pay for it.  A major step in this process is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Most post-secondary institutions require this application to be completed each year that a student is in attendance in order to be awarded any financial aid.  Typically, this application opens every year on October 1st.   This year the application has undergone quite a few changes so it will not be available to complete until mid-December.  Here is the link that will take you directly to the website to get started.
