You’ve probably heard your counselor or other adults talk about THE FAFASA®.  FAFSA stands for Free Application for Federal Student Aid, which is the form students complete to apply for federal grants, work-study, and loans to help pay for college and training. It’s also used by states and schools to determine your eligibility for scholarships. This important document will help you determine what your out-of-pocket expenses will be for completing your certificate or degree program.

Each year, the FAFSA opens October 1st and closes June 30th. Students are highly encouraged to apply as early as possible to ensure the best financial aid offers from the federal government and schools.
