Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is a document that students complete every year that they are enrolled in postsecondary education if they want to receive a portion of the $80 billion dollars that the Federal Student Aid program disburses each year through grants, loans, and work study. Additionally, most colleges and universities use the results of the FAFSA to determine the amount of financial aid that they award to their students. The application can be completed on paper or online.
