COMPLETING THE FAFSA
On January 1, 2017 the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available. Completing the FAFSA is critical to getting access to billion in grants, loans, and work-study funds. Moreover, it is free, quick (on average, taking less than 30 minutes!), and easy.
To make sure that students do not leave money on the table, the Department has prepared a number of blog posts:
- 7 Things You Need Before You Fill Out the FAFSA
- 7 Steps to Filling Out the FAFSA
- 11 Common FAFSA Mistakes
Also, Acting Secretary King recorded a video encouraging students to complete the FAFSA.
