About the FAFSA


The FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the main application you need to complete to be considered for grants, loans, or work study aid. It's the basis of your entire financial aid package, so it's very important to submit it on time every year!

Follow these step-by-step instructions on how to apply for aid.
