FAFSA and You

If you’re preparing for college and need money for tuition and living expenses, you’re probably looking into scholarships, grants or student loans. But did you know the first thing you’ll need to do is fill out your FAFSA?

No, FAFSA is not a fancy new coffee drink made by your favorite barista. FAFSA stands for “Free Application for Federal Student Aid” and is the first step to getting Federal money for college. The application asks for information about you, your family, your finances and more.

Some state or college financial aid may require you to submit additional information or applications, but a FAFSA is your first stop in finding money for college. So grab a cup of coffee, and stir up some money for college tuition.
