What is a FAFSA form and why do I need to complete one?
All U.S. students who wish to be considered for financial aid must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid offices at educational institutions use the FAFSA to determine if you are eligible for grants, loans, and work-study programs. You MUST file a new FAFSA every year in order to be considered for financial aid. These forms are available in January.
