WHERE DOES IT COME FROM? Aid can come from the U.S. Federal Government, the state where you live, the college or trade school you attend, or from a nonprofit or private organization.
HOW DO I APPLY? You should apply by completing & submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). And remember, the first "F" in FAFSA stands for FREE so please be sure you never pay to complete the FAFSA.
WHAT IF MY TAX DOCUMENTS ARE NOT READY YET? It is best to complete your FAFSA anyway and use an estimate from your previous year's taxes. Once your current tax documents are available, you can log back in and update your information. WHERE DO I GO TO APPLY OR GET MORE INFORMATION? You should visitwww.fafsa.ed.gov. WHAT IS THE DEADLINE TO APPLY? The sooner the better! Many grants are given on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds run out. The federal deadline is June 30th. The state deadline is March 1st.
