The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application used by nearly all colleges and universities to determine eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs.
FAFSA deadlines are set by federal and state agencies, as well as individual school financial aid offices, and vary widely. Make sure that you check the federal aid deadline of each school that you are applying to!
The FAFSA application is available on October 1st!
